Despite my urge to murder everything microsoft, I've been redoing my Vim setup on my new Windows8 box and I wanted to share my vim setup with you guys today! It's in the form of a poorly worded github page, but I figure it's enough for people to tell me that everything I do is right and I should change nothing. Or the complete logical opposite to that last sentence. Either is cool, as long as it comes with a hug.

Or with a better code viewer: https://github.com/inmatarian/inmataria ... _love2d.md

Here's my vim thing, if you are curious (I use it for everything, not just LÖVE):

When I write def I mean function.

It's a text editor that's notable for having insane keybindings. Instead of using Ctrl and Alt for everything, it has "Modes" that you switch between. Most editors have Insert and Replace mode, Vim also has a Command mode where all of the keybindings are a single keypress, and some other modes as well. Vim sees a lot of usage by lots of Linux users, and some Unix (mac) users.

Why do we put up with such a bizarre text editor? There are several answers, but the one that most people care about is speed. You can do things really fast when you get proficient with vim. Initially it's a steep learning curve though.
