    The best thing about Vim is that you don't have to choose between Vim and an IDE! Any text editor or IDE that's even moderately popular will probably have a decent Vim plugin. The only downside is that you generally won't have access to Vim plugins (abolish.vim is the one I find myself missing the most: https://github.com/tpope/vim-abolish).

    Personally, I learned to use Vim via the VsVim plugin for Visual Studio.

    Indent-blankline to draw indentation guides, nvim-autopairs to automatically complete pairs of brackets and quotes (I didn’t know I couldn’t live without it), nvim-ts-autotag to autocomplete pairs of tags as well, targets.vim to target what is inside or outside the mentioned pairs and vim-surround to manage all those pairs with few keystrokes. Kommentary to comment and uncomment lines of code, nvim-cursorline to help locate where the cursor is and nvim-colorizer because I am cheeky. Vim-abolish is definitely an interesting one. I decided to install it because of its case coercion capabilities, but it can do much more than that.
  • Abbreinder - abbreviation reminder plugin

    I create a lot of abbreviations, especially with vim-abolish. They're generally useful, but the problem is, they're hard to remember if I haven't used them in a while. To solve this problem I created a plugin, abbreinder.nvim, which reminds the user if they've typed the value of something that they could have used a pre-existing abbreviation for.

    All these solutions look promising. I've already benefited from including them in my VIM configuration while writing this blog post. Will do further testing and investigation in next days. Haven't yet tried plugins like vim-pencil or vim-abolish.
  • search and replace camelCase to snake_case

    I'm find of the 'coercion' mappings in Tim Popes abolish package for these kinds of transformations: https://github.com/tpope/vim-abolish#coercion

    What is the vim-way of replacing for example a variable in camelCase with its snake_case variant? I have installed vim-abolish plugin of tpope and it provides mappings like crs for the word under cursor.
