macOS – how to get familiar with VIM

If you have never ever worked with CLI (on macOS) I suggest to start with iTerm2: I just want you to know, this is my personal view, that iTerm2 is way better comparing to default Terminal – one that you can find inside /Applications/Utilities/

If you have never ever worked with VIM before, I strongly suggest to go through VIM tutorial. Start terminal application, and simply type vimtutor.

> vimtutor

You will find there lots of basics related to VIM: how to move around in the text, how to quit, how to edit and delete text, etc.

Just one comment from my side. Make sure to get familiar with lesson β„–1.2

Lesson 1.2: EXITING VIM

otherwise, you might get stuck forever ;)

After going through all the basics, I suggest jumping here: I am pretty sure, you will find this video very comprehensive. It covers lots of fancy features available in VIM.
