I love vim.
Although I used vim for some months now, I always did some tasks with vscodium, e.g.:
- removing leading/trailing characters in multiple lines
- search and replace
But because opening files in vim is so much faster than in vscodium, especially if I only want to edit one file, I searched for some vim-esque solutions:
- removing in multiple lines: go into visual block mode (
ctrl + v), highlight the correct block, do your thing (e.g.
xto remove character)
- removing in multiple lines: go into visual line mode (
shift + v), highlight the correct lines, do your thing in command mode (e.g.
- search and replace: go into command mode (
:), search in all lines (
emacsand ask on each occurrency (
So as we can see, there are multiple solutions for different problems.
But actually both problems can get destructured into simple steps.
I think this kind of thinking also leads to better problem solving.
