Vim tips: Vim mappings and abbreviations


Recommended Posts

Vim ships with a lot of useful functions that make life easier when you're editing text, but Vim is also an extremely extensible editor. If you find yourself typing the same long commands or strings of text over and over again, it's time you learned how to set mappings and abbreviations in Vim, to save valuable keystrokes for your code or prose.

Just as you can set shortcuts in KDE, you can map keystrokes to actions in Vim. A mapping can be as simple as creating an abbreviation that converts your initials to your full name, or something more complicated, like running a function when you press F10. Let's take a look at mappings, and how they can make you much more productive when working in Vim.


Algo que eu encontrei ao ler as notícias do e-mail e que acho útil para todos os que trabalham com o Vim (por acaso não é o meu caso). Achei por bem partilhar o tutorial, neste caso em inglês. Acho que seria bom que houvesse documentação deste género em português, isto é, uma comunidade dedicada exclusivamente a notícias relacionadas com o mundo do Free Software e Software Open Source. 😄
