Intro So after picking up Vim less than a year ago, and spending a lot of time with it, I can say for sure it is the best text editor I have ever used. Okay, that’s all the Vim propaganda you’ll find in this post. The main aim of this post is to get people new to Vim into a comfortable environment, while also teaching you how to get plugins into your vim config since you’ll probably want to customize it, once you get a feel of Vim.
