Entry 1: Topic Intro

Topic: Vim As My IDE   

Created on Fri, 04 May 2012.
Last Modified on Wed, 28 Aug 2013.

Growing up, I used Notepad. Then some MS Visual studios and Eclipse. I went on to use Notepad++ for c programming, then progressed back into text-based IDE's by trying out Emacs.
While Emacs made my pinky sore, VIM... well, I just fell in love with vim.

I focused a solid few weeks doing everything in vim, even though the learning curve was steep. I kept the keyboard cheat sheet nearby and drudged on. Now the VIM-style keyboard navigation is second nature and is a lot more efficient and less frustrating then reaching over for that retched mouse.

I've added a few plugins since then, and hope to progress into creating my own macros and things..

so far, my favorite plugins have been NERD tree and NERD Commenter. With a few more settings to the .vimrc I got syntax highlighting and more~

In this log topic, I plan to talk about Vim configurations and plugins... and my efforts in becoming a Vim master~

PLEASE let me know if I'm doing something wrong, or if you have any suggestions or requests~
