Discussion on: Will Vim give me more productivity!?

For me personally it's not about vim itself, but rather it's modal editing model. So I always recommend people to at least try a vim plugin in their editor of choice. From my experience they work good enough.

The benefit of using vim instead of another editor, is that it's pretty fast. So if I don't need a lot of tooling or a proper IDE I just launch vim and make the edit before any other editor even launched haha.

Will vim alone make you a better developer? Not really. If someone uses vim but does not really know their way around, then it will not really sky rocket their productivity. But I think everyone should always try to learn something new and at least try out things, if you don't like it, you can still go back.

I am really looking forward for OniVim2 to improve. It's essentially what you get when you combine the fastness of Sublime Text, modal editing of Vim and the extension ecosystem of VSCode.
