My X Vim Tips


This document is useful for using Vim (neovim) and other tools.

1. Edit the current shell command in Vim

Note: assuming

export EDITOR=nvim
# Enable Ctrl-x-e to edit the command line
autoload -U edit-command-line
Ctrl-x Ctrl-e

2. Rename a few files at a time using VIM

curl > /usr/local/bin/vimv && chmod +755 /usr/local/bin/vimv

vimv *.txt

P.S. Of course, you need the $EDITOR env variable.

3. Jump to interesting elements in an editor:

$ git jump diff

So assume you have such a diff:

diff --git foo.c foo.c
index a655540..5a59044 100644
--- foo.c
+++ foo.c
@@ -1,3 +1,3 @@
 int main(void) {
-  printf("hello word!\n");
+  printf("hello world!\n");

$ git jump diff

Will open an $EDITOR on foo.c:3.

To be continued…
