LXer: Empowering Vim Editor

Published at LXer:

Vim is the most advanced editor in linux/unix world. But its default settings are according to the vi editor hence hides its tremendous capabilities. Some times Vim is the only editor which we can use, like in remote header less system or in system which intentionally avoid graphics to provide its full strength to the servers daemons. What ever may be the situation; vim can be configured in such a way that specifically addresses all the features just we need. Vim reads the .vimrc from the home directory. Once we configure the .vimrc according to our requirements; editing by Vim will simply be a great joy. I have written this document to show you amazingly useful features of the vim editor in console mode and how a properly configured .vimrc makes text editing with Vim a peace of mind.
