    Don’t start from scratch unless you’re a special kind of tinkerer.

    Do the `vimtutor`
    Once you're done with it, install the vim plugin for either intellij or vscode, depending on which you use. Try to learn it one keymap at a time, it's easy to get overwhelmed at first when switching to a modal editor.
    When you got comfortable with vim keybinds, go down the rabbit hole and either use kickstart.nvim or a distribution like lunar.
    Most anything you can do in the other IDEs can be done in vim. The opposite is less true because vim is firmly integrated in the shell's ecosystem.
    Have fun!

    w for next word
    b for back a word
    / for searching, n for next occurrence, N for previous
    * to go to next word that's the same as the word under your cursor, # to go to the previous
    { and } to go to next/previous paragraph
    gg or G to go to start or end of file, can never remember which
    f to find the letter you type next, F to find backwards, t to go up to the letter (basically what f does but 1 character less), ditto T
    s to remove character under cursor and enter insert mode
    v to select text, V to select whole lines
    a to append, i to insert
    d to cut (delete), y to copy, p to paste after cursor or P to paste before
    u to undo, ctrl+r to un-undo
    o to create a new line and enter insert mode, O to do the same but above the current line instead of below
    $ to go to end of line, 0 to go to start or ^ to go to start less whitespace
    % to go to matching brace

    Probably forgot some but that's like 85% of it

      So, vim is just one letter keyboard shortcuts ?

      • 4 weeks ago

        yes, since it's a modal editor, it has one letter shortcuts for a lot of commands

    Don't start with a configuration, just start with empty Neovim.
    Priority one: pretend you're playing a video game. If you've played ARMA or a complicated simulator or a complicated roguelike it's basically the same in terms of controls.
    Learn the basic controls with vimtutor. Google it if you can't figure out how to get into vimtutor.
    Start with simple stuff first. w, b, ctrl-d, ctrl-u, i, hjkl, and escape are enough to start with.
    Force yourself to practice with neovim's keybinds and don't b***h out. If you need to do something, force yourself to ignore the mouse and arrow keys.
    Anytime you're stuck, try googling or ":help [thing]" without square brackets.
    Once you get good enough you'll start running into "wait, there's something I want to do but I don't see a keybind." There's usually a built-in solution and if there isn't, you can finally opt to install a plugin to add a new feature.
    That will teach you how to do everything without getting drowned in plugin spam. It's hard but it's the best way to really get up to speed without getting overwhelmed.

      I don't expect the person who writes my software to be someone I want to be friends with, that doesn't mean I won't use the software.

    I would say vim adventures but unfortunately it's paywalled. Vimulator is also good as well.
