Vim For Developers Book Cover

I've been using Vim for more than seven years now, and it still amazes me every single day. It's lightweight, it's extensible, and it's amazingly productive.

It would be nice if more people would use Vim, as it's such an excellent tool that makes you feel like a superman.

The problem is that out of the box, Vim is not too impressive (compared to the modern IDEs), so a newbie has to spend some time setting it up properly.

So that's why I wrote this book that focuses on the configuration from the very first chapter. In this book, you will not only learn how to use Vim, but what's much more important — how to adjust it to your own needs.

Me - the book's author
  • 🔥 Pragmactic approach — productive from Chapter 1
  • 🔧Focus on configuration specific for your needs
  • 🎯Less theory, only what you need to know to be productive
  • 🛠️Vast selection of modern plugins described with pros and cons
  • 💻A robust full-featured IDE by the end of the book
  • 💡Learn awesome unix CLI tools to increase your productivity

Who is this book for?

This book is perfect for folks looking to dive into Vim without losing productivity on day one.

How is it different from the other books?

This book is explicitly focused on building an IDE-like environment on top of Vim. That means configuring and adding essential plugins from the start. Vim theory is also covered to a great extent, but it is rather secondary to the main plot and it unravels slowly as we go towards our eventual goal.

What Vim version is used?

We're working with the regular Vim (8+). But you can use any other flavor (like Neovim).
