re: Vim for starters - the minimum you need to know VIEW POST


As soon as you have Git installed on Windows and are required to make changes not supported by your GUI, as soon as you commit your changes, you will be confronted with vim, because it is the default editor. Yes, you can change the default editor or you can then commit on the GUI, but that would be, im my opinion, counterproductive.
Also, as soon as you start with Containers (like Dockers), you have no GUI. If you don't use volumes, you probably can work by copying files back and forth, but that is also not really useful. So therefore, a basic knowledge of vim is always helpful.
