With the previous thread I had posted, I mentioned that I am a casual coder. I've started to look at ways to allow me to code easier and more productively and would be grateful for advice and tips.
So far, I've been using vim as my editor. I've tried emacs and unfortunately I just can't get used to the keybindings, I just find those on vim a lot easier and intuitive. With vim, I've used ctags and the ctag plugin and so the ease of browsing code. I've also started using i3-wm which I find useful with it's vim type keybinding to switch between vim and Firefox which I use for reference and tutorials. I've also installed the firefox-vimperator plugin which I find useful as well.
I've tried to use GNU Screen/Byobu in conjuction with vim when coding (one window for vim and the other for running the code for debugging purposes) and I just can't get used to it due to get mixed up with keybindings of both software. With vim,i3-wm, I can have separate windows for these and switch between the two but is there a vim plugin that can emulate this or does anybody have a better idea?
I was wondering if anybody has any tips to organise code samples, tutorials and API's in an environment that uses vim? I believe Doxygen suports tags that can be supported with the vim-ctags plugin but is there any that specifically supports ctags?
