I finished the labs on CLI commands and vi basics. I think it’s time to move to a different course. The next section is about Virtual Box and I plan to skip it. The vi basics were very basic but I was reminded of a few commands that I had forgotten.
A couple of examples:
yy (copy) and
p to paste
This quick intro to vi makes me want to actually learn it. There are some games out there to practice. It’s something I could do 🤔.
I’m getting bored with the prerequisites course. I’m going to find something else to study by the next update.
OK you need to kick off some vi vs other text editor arguments, I am a emacs guy but I am not taken seriously
seriously I use nano vi is a museum piece
vi can be pretty cool. I never memorized the most useful commands so there was no added efficiency. I had the keybindings set up in VS Code on my laptop but I haven’t done that on my work computer.
I once spent 3 days practicing vim for hours, just going through the list of commands. It worked well enough that it became my primary editor for years. These days, I usually prefer vscode but still use vim regularly.
Had no idea there are vi games!
Cool! I think😊
