    Hello everybody! For a long time, I never understood why so many developers were using Vim. After trying it seriously, I was very surprised how easy it is to learn, and how many CLIs use the same keystrokes! That’s why I thought it would be a good idea to write an article how I learned the very basics of Vim, and share it with developers. I don’t preach that you should get rid of your IDE from Hell and embrace Vim for everything, but instead trying to learn how it works. Because it’s useful in many other CLIs, as I say above, but first and foremost because Vim is fun! In short, what this article will cover: How to have proper typing techniques and why it is useful (for Vim, but not only). Why using hjkl instead of the arrow keys is a game changer. Writing your own cheatsheet is very useful while learning Vim, in order to very quickly remembering everything. The basics keystrokes for Vim. No worries: they are very logical and therefore easy to learn! Here’s the article: https://thevaluable.dev/vim-for-beginnners/ – by hq overview phantaso0s – –
