Discussion on: I'm considering to use vim or neovim as my primary text editor. Any tips?

Hi, I use vim since 10 years or a bit more. For a beginner nowadays, I would recommand a plugin manager like pathogen (it becomes easy to clone a vim plugin from a public repo as github and use it immediately as a plugin in vim), NerdTree, some linter for syntax, emmet to expand abbreviations, vim-airline for status in vim. There are a lot more but there is only one rule : everything you have in a GUI editor, you can have it in vim with a terminal. Or I guess... ;)
