Learn Vim the Hard Way


#1

Zed mentioned having considered teaching Vim. I think this would be such a great idea considering how many people seem to struggle to get it under their fingers even after months or years of using it.

This sounds like a great idea! Seconded!

I’ll +1 the long way.

There’s already a VimScript course, here’s the link.

I’m learning Vim using this video game: http://vim-adventures.com/

Does the job for me so far. I’d rather play a video game than read a book!

@donal_m I played through this game, it’s just a demo. You have to pay for access to the whole thing which will only last you 6 months.

@juggernaut Hey dude, yeah that’s totally right. It’s just a demo for the first few levels and then it’s a six month licence. I think it’s a novel way of learning something and I’m enjoying it. But, I understand if you wouldn’t want too because of the cost. It took me like a year before I decided I actually wanted to pay for it. The vimscript course looks good. I might give it a try. If I do both, I’ll rewrite a review of them, and compare.
