  • Vim vs Vscode: Developer Productivity
    2 projects | | 26 Dec 2022
    Vim is infinitely customizable. While Vscode allows you to change the app’s color scheme, install plugins, and change a few app settings, Vim offers you complete control over the editor’s experience. You have thousands of plugins to choose from. You can completely remap any keybinding and create new shortcuts for tasks in your daily workflow. And giving you more power as a developer, you can completely reprogram or automate your Vim experience with the built-in Vimscript language or Lua for Neovim.

  • '%' not working - should jump to matching '{}'
    3 projects | | 19 Oct 2022
    I recently moved to Mac/OSX from Linux and have struggled with my vim setup. I found some installations bundles that attempt to set everything up for me, so I used one of those, iirc it is this one: . However, I have some issues with it. While coding, I often want to jump around code blocks and I do so by taking advantage of the '{}' characters (curly braces) used for code blocks in the languages I use (javascript and C++). In vi, the '%' character can be used to jump between the matching curly brace. However, in my current setup, this does not work. How can I find how to make the '%' feature work again?

    That is probably a couple of hours worth of work getting the plugins set up. Then you're in the wild west looking for things that are interesting. I suggest you stay as minimal as you can as long as you can, but there is plenty to find.

    I have just started using vim and already really like it. As I mainly want to use it for Python, I was trying to set up some relevant plugins (so far ale) using vundle. I have cloned the Vundle and ale folder into ~/.vim/bundle. But when I run :Pluginstall in my .vimrc get the errors:
  • Idea for a library manager
    6 projects | | 11 Jul 2022
    Let me start this by saying I am new to OpenSCAD, but I have an idea that I would be interested in working on if this is something people think would be useful. My idea is to make a library manager like Vundle that would do all the repository pulling and library management for me. Because OpenSCAD doesn't have a central repository for libraries like PyPI, and people have made some really cool libraries on GitHub, I think a manager like Vundle would be a good fit.

    This is a good guide for starting from scratch. It suggests you use the Vundle package manager, which I think will go a long way to helping set things up correctly, but the whole guide seems like it's worth following.
