vi & constructing commands

2014-03-12 02:34:29.631168+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Why Atom can't replace Vim, and, you know, I've never had vi commands explained that clearly and it almost makes me want to switch from Emacs. Damn, that's nice and clear.

The 'evil' emulation mode in Emacs is supposed to be really pretty close to "real" Vim these days. I've considered trying to switch over to that, because I agree the "verb-thing" model is nice, but I really don't have to have to re-boostrap my whole editor environment at this point...

Regressing to vi?? seriously? You could just go to cuneiform, I mean it has very stable storage(even during power outages) and is very readable (even in direct sunlight)...
