I began using vim in January 2013. (I was mostly using gedit before, but it was so slow at times that it couldn’t keep up with me typing on the keyboard.) I suppose my use of vim isn’t the most widespread. I write code occasionally only, I mainly write emails and documents, so my set-up reflects this and the tips I share here are not the most interesting for coders.
Here is a full list of vim tips. My beginner’s ~/.vim is public.
