Advanced vim usage?

Could a wise vim wizard share with us the art of advanced vim usage using plugins and commands not explained in this article? --Svenstaro 22:45, 19 August 2009 (EDT)

I am not a wizard, but regardless, one of the things to do is simply peruse the quickref and try to think of when such and such command or keystroke could be useful. Read the associated documentation for those you are interested in. See also Jonathan McPherson's article on efficient editing as well as Bram Moolenar's version. --khne522 Forgot to sign at the moment of posting.


"This is the basic usage on how to use vim" is a very awkward sentece. I've changed it.

Nod. How it is put now describes it better. --Gen2ly 15:39, 21 October 2009 (EDT)

256 Colorschemes

There should be a comment somewhere in the vimrc example pointing out that 256 colors load properlly if the colorscheme sentence on the vimrc is at the bottom of the file

vim != vi

If vi is going to redirect here, we at least need something to distinguish these. | Emiralle 09:47, 11 October 2011 (EDT)

Well, the intro already says "Vim is an advanced text editor that seeks to provide the power of the de-facto UNIX editor ‘vi’, with a more complete feature set." but if you want to add more it's a welcome thing :) -- Kynikos 16:01, 12 October 2011 (EDT)


In the Spell Check section the ifromation are inconlplete, now the spell check for Vim are in the reopositroy so I think that the section need to be updated, I was thinking someting like that:

Only English language dictionaries are installed by default, more can be found in the Template:Codeline reopository

# pacman -Ss vim-spell

to get the list of available language,

# pacman -S vim-spell-xy

where xy are the language of your choice.

The spell check files can also be found at the vim ftp archive. After downloading the spl files for the given language (e.g. hu.cp1250.spl, hu.iso-8859-2.spl and/or hu.utf-8.spl for Hungarian) into ~/.vim/spell, run:

:setlocal spell spelllang=LL

This is just a sample, not fully formatted.Maveloth 08:32, 15 October 2011 (EDT)
