Learn vim For the Last Time: A Tutorial and Primer
The problem with learning Vim is not that it's hard to do---it's that you have to keep doing it. This guide attempts to break that cycle, so that you can learn it for the last time.
There are dozens of Vim references online, but most of them either go ninja straight away, or start basic and don't go much deeper.
The goal of this tutorial is to take you through every stage of progression—from understanding the vim philosophy (which will stay with you forever), to surpassing your skill with your current editor, to becoming “one of those people”.
In short, we're going to learn vim in a way that will stay with you for life.
Let's get started.
