to all #Vim and #NeoVim lovers. #helix is another vim inspired editor. First impression is really great. Although there is no plugin system yet it's already quite usable. Many features, like lsp support, are baked in. It's developed from scratch with Rust.

Why do you need to quit #vim?

@shupfel Was expecting to find a mention of "#VeryMagic" option.

One from StackOverflow:

In vim, is there a way to set "very magic" permanently and globally? <>

I tried a search (/) remap to search with "\v", ostensibly to avoid "\" for [()+] etc. Also tried in "s///". But that experiment turned out be the case of cure being worse than the disease (do not remember the exact issues now).
#vim #regex

Hello #vim people! I am an Emacs freak, but I decided to give Vim a try. I am using #bspwm with picom as my compositor (obviously :P). The problem is that I prefer gvim specifically. Here is a side by side comparison of how it looks normally (left is vim running in Alacritty, right is gvim) before and after attempting hi Normal guibg=NONE ctermbg=NONE. Why doesn’t gvim show me a transparent bg and instead it goes to the default white one? This really annoys me and I can’t find any real fix (at least using my Google/DDG-fu) besides “lol just use guibg=NONE and It’ll Just Work™). Is there something I’m missing?

@pabuisson Hi! I recommend to give catppuccin theme a try. It comes in 4 flavors, going from lightest to darkest, and I think that the "latte" flavor will suit your needs.

It also lets you customize the colors. I've been using it for a while now.

I was thinking about my first experience with Vim and I remember it being so awful that I gave up after 5 minutes. Now it got me thinking what would be the worst type of thing to work on as a first Vim learning session. I think it could be an article about volume groups in LVM. You're prepared to learn, filled with excitement, you start typing. "The VG does..." and now your entire document is gone 😬 You can't even ragequit. Guess my first Vim experience wasn't that bad after all.

Over the course of half a year, I went from not knowing #Vim keybindings to "Can't live without 'em". They are everywhere: GitHub, Evince PDF reader, GNOME through customization, Zellij, pagers, Zsh... I understand why people absolutely love Vim. The editor is great, but the experience extends far outside of the editor as well.

Vim editor

would love to play me a game of #vimgolf but it requires me to sign in via #twitter, which I am not quite eager to do... #vim

Woah! I've been using Vi for 20 years now, and have only just accidentally discovered that the `ci` and `di` (change inside) and (delete inside) commands work when the cursor isn't inside those things! It'll find the next occurrence. Even if it's on a different line. #vim #vi

The eternal fight between #emacs, #vim and #vi.

#linux #sysadmin #unix

@arialdo @otfrom call me weird but I like #editors to be #simple and not require any training to use.

That's why i use #nano and not #vi, #vim or #neovim.

Going through a period of relearning #vim... Realising how many antipatterns I've developed, I need to slow down a bit and take some time to do things in a more ergonomic way. It helps, fx, to set relativenumber, so that I can go 10j instead of jjjjjjjjjj...

Using search strings instead of jumps help.

Also installed which-key.nvim. Yes.

@otfrom Also whilst I hate #emacs, I didn't have the time nor patience yet to get into #vim or rather #neovim and oftentimes #nano is one of the few tools that actually works.

I do try to replace wget with curl but sadly not everything works 1:1 ...

Gladly I don't have to deal with GCC cuz replacing that thing with LLVM doesn't work - at least not yet...

I've finally bit the bullet and installed #neovim. I followed the instructions for reusing my .vimrc[1] and gave it a shot. No differences discovered yet.

My #vim setup is decades old, it's crufty, uses hand-crafted plugins, and would make any vim purist weep. But it's powerful and it's mine. I am shocked that neovim appears, so far, to have handled it seamlessly.

on injecting personality into your apps. Context: kindaVim is an app that gives #macOS users vim-like interactivity in essentially any text field. I LOVE this so much. Only downside is that the time the dev has chosen for its "sleeping" time means I need to wait until 1PM to test the app which is weird and i'll likely forget all about it. I was thinking something like.. sleeps until 10AM.

#vim #indiedev

screenshot of unlimited trial text. it reads:  Unlimited trial.

The trial is full-featured and there's no expiry date, but without a subscription kindaVim gets lazy and sleeps in the mornings.

If you don't need it in the mornings then you're good to go! Else you may consider subscribing for the price of one coffee a month (USD$3.28 excl. tax) to keep kindaVim awake 24/7.

More #webassembly plugin system updates for #zellij

Here we see a demonstration of plugin workers (our built-in workaround for threads). We see the Strider plugin searching the file system (both file names and their contents), rendering in real time and offloading the search itself to the background worker.

When we select a search result, Strider will open it for us in a new pane with our default editor (#vim in my case) to the correct line if relevant.

Coming next release.

Editor musings:

I mostly use IntelliJ at work (Java & TypeScript). The IDEAVim #Vim plugin is very good.

I will now try #helixEditor again as a replacement for the stuff that I'm still doing in (Neo)Vim.
I'm so fed up with having to keep up with my vim config.
We'll see how it goes.

Today's Vim tip: Buffers

Vim keeps an in-memory version of every file you've opened in a session, and has a bunch of commands to switch quickly between them.

Use ":buffers :ls" to view all your open buffers.

:bp to go to the previous buffer
:bn to go to the next buffer

:help :buffers for more detailed info and more commands

Watched a stream on modal editing options in #emacs by @daviwil and my thoughts are that meow is interesting HCI project and quite good in terms of UX: It visually shows the object you will operate on first and let you make some modification second.

I had around a decade of #vim experience, I could do some operations very efficiently, but it never tasted right. I think verb+object approach is just suboptimal, also it can't be accompanied by a nice UI feedback.
