re: Do Everything Vetter Don't Exit Vim
 

Don't Exit Vim has got to be my favourite so far.


Pro tip: ESC + :wq = exit vim

:w = Write
:q = Quit
:wq = Write buffer and quit
 

Another other pro tip, that's bound to just ZZ, withough a colon.

 

Another pro tip! There is a shortcut for :wq:x

Another pro tip for regex:

:%s/term/replacement/g

I'll use something similar when I rebase (to squash) a series of commits in a git repo (vim's my editor for Git). If when presented with the list of commits you do:

:2,$s/pick/s/g

You'll squash all commits into a single commit in one fell swoop.

 

To be fair, any reference to Vim being hard to quit is always a cheap win.

As a regular vim user, the cheapest win for me is emacs.
