re: What one should know about VIM before starting to use it? VIEW POST

  1. Learn how to use the help command: :help or :h. So valuable, often forgotten. E.g. Type :h :q + enter to learn about the quit command. Helpful: Learn to use help
  2. Don’t give up. I tried to learn vim 5 times before it stuck.

Another helpful resource for getting started: vimgifs
