Did you know that the most productive command line experts uses powerful features of the Vim text editor?

The problem is that if you want to get really good with Vim it can take you an extremely long time if you’re trying to learn it on your own.

That’s why the Vim : Bootcamp was created.

This course gives you the absolute shortest path to learning the basics. It also provides you the fastest way to learn the most advanced features, too.

By the time you finish the Vim : Bootcamp you’ll know how to:

  • Work with multiple files, including how to move data back and forth between different files, copying & pasting from one file to another, and quickly jumping to another file. You’ll also learn how to view multiple files at the same time using Vim’s windowing system.
  • Use the must-know keyboard shortcuts and how to remember them easily. You’ll actually learn how to “think in Vim” so you don’t even have to memorize each and every command, saving you countless hours of work.
  • Find and replace entire blocks of information within a file. That includes how to refactor your code by renaming all variables in a file or set of files, reliably. Of course, you’ll learn simple find and replace techniques to replace a word in an entire file and much more.
  • Cut, copy and paste. You’ll find out how to make the most of Vim’s built-in clipboard system, use Vim’s clipboard history, and how to access your system’s clipboard from within Vim.
  • Visually select blocks of text and perform edits on those blocks like moving the block, deleting the block, indenting/shifting the block, and more. You’ll understand Vim’s text objects so you can quickly select single or multiple words, lines, paragraphs, HTML/XML tags, code blocks, and more.
  • How to make vertical edits and use Vim’s Visual Block Mode. (Some call this column editing mode or rectangle mode…)
  • Enable syntax highlighting for source code, configuration files, or any type of file you edit often. That includes how to customize the color scheme and color code text in Vim.
  • Employ simple to advanced navigation techniques so you can go exactly to where you need in a file very fast.
