I’ve been using vi for ages and about my limit is search and replace.
Here’s a place for some magic I’ve been picking up more recently.
When you’ve forgotten to open the file with
sudo and still need to save your changes:
:w !sudo tee %
Grab the result of a shell command and place the results at the cursor, eg.
Disable the annoyance that is visual mode by adding this into
set mouse-=a filetype indent plugin off
Block editing = CTRL+V, highlight the block and hit DEL or use insert
Goto End of document = G
Undo = u
Delete Line = dd
Paste = p
CTRL + S Locks Session
This is a common mistake for me. I press CTRL+S and the session locks up. Unlock it with CTRL+Q
Add this into
