re: How often do you save per minute? VIEW POST


Right after creating a new file, right after finishing a logical block of changes or additions, right before leaving the editor, and that's about it.

I use vim to the exclusion of pretty much everything else (even for things like formal documents, I do them in Markdown in vim first, then manually copy the result into LibreOffice to do the final formatting and save), and the way I have it configured means that as long as the disk doesn't die (at which point I'm screwed anyway), the editor exiting without me explicitly closing it won't lose much (if any), it'll just prompt me about recovery when I open the file again.
