Using Vim Everywhere

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

I use both Emacs and Vim regularly and I try to incorporate Vim keybindings for nearly everything I do. It makes switching from browser to editor very efficient, and avoids a lot of the RSI associated with the default keybindings configured in Emacs.

Here are some extensions and plugins I use to include Vim keybindings on my machine:

Chrome/Firefox

Emacs

VS Code

Also

Vim from the MIT Missing Lectures series

If Vim Everwhere sounds crazy, give it a chance. Once you get comfy on the homewrow, you’ll never want to reach for a mouse again.
