An IDE Called Vim

About the Book

Vim is a timeless piece of software available for everyone on every platform.

Through the years, numerous tutorials, books and blog posts have been written on the good and bad of Vim. Every tip and trick as been explored and explained somewhere. But when using it as a code editor, information is still scarce and scattered.

An IDE Called Vim aims to bridge that gap, from basic functionality, to advanced techniques, we will explore a great number of ways to use and configure your Vim installation as an IDE.
