  • Is it too late to learn emacs as a vim lifer?
    3 projects | /r/emacs | 3 Oct 2023
    You'll want to invest the time in learning Magit, which will change your life once you get the hang of it (and I was a heavy user of Fugitive in Vim previously!), and it's unlikely you'll find a better integration with GDB anywhere else on the planet than with Emacs, though I can't say that empirically. You just need to take the plunge and start learning it, then cut over and take the hit in productivity one day when you're feeling adventurous. You'll ultimately become far more powerful than you've ever been. Especially if you delve into elisp over time. I use Spacemacs, which is bloated and has bugs, but it has so many features that I haven't undertaken the massive endeavor to replace it from scratch yet.
  • webify.nvim - Open the current file in the remote's web interface (github or gitlab) or yank its URL

    For an option that works on Vim, if you already use tpope's vim-fugitive, there's vim-rhubarb (for GitHub) and fugitive-gitlab.vim (for GitLab).
  • Vim users who work without any plugins, how does your vimrc look like?

    I replace vim-fugitive with :! git
  • Switching from Emacs. My experience
    20 projects | /r/neovim | 24 May 2023
    The only thing I truly miss from Emacs is [Magit]( since I still consider it the best git wrapper available. It is just too good. Unfortunately [Neogit]( is not quite there yet although I hope it makes it at some point. I didn't like [Fugitive], but I ended up finding a good enough workaround by using [Lazygit]( through [Toggleterm](

    I do think VSCode is a great tool and I recommend it frequently to people, but I still want to set the record straight here. Yes, vim is obviously limited in the sense that as a CLI app it doesn't draw it's own PDF or HTML windows, that's fair. But it can remote control your favorite PDF viewer or browser for roughly the same functionality. I'm currently writing my thesis using vimtex and it's quite smooth. And all the other stuff you mention is implemented quite competently by various plugins like vim-fugitive, coc.nvim, vimspector and copilot.vim.

  • Github Permalink direct from Xcode?

    I'm using the vim-fugitive NeoVim plugin to get GitHub permalinks. Just select a portion of text, then use the command :GBrowse.
  • Some plugin for tracking and visualizing of changes across multiple buffers? Or switches between buffers?
    2 projects | /r/vim | 19 Apr 2023
    Yes, I can use mark for this, also with some plugin for saving them in a list, but my current approach - change something in a line - and I will see that line in my git diff through fugitive in :G, but better to see all changes/undo across multiple buffers...
  • Introducing: Advanced Git Search (Telescope extension)

    Yes, vim-fugitive is used for this. Check out the β€œ:GBrowse” command.
  • As someone who has done something similar in the past, I don't feel bad about laughing. 🀣 (Also this guy got the advice he needed.)

    I have definitely done the thing where I write notes in a temporary buffer in Neovim to be later used for the amendment. Using Screen definitely makes switching to a different terminal window quite a bit easier though. My Emacs friends tell me that this is why they swear by Magit. I should be able to do something similar with Fugitive, which I do use, but I guess now that I'm thinking about it, it's never bugged enough to bother.
