So I’m making my way through `$ vimtutor` because I feel like it’s time I think about letting go of emacs key bindings and the apps that such muscle memory keeps me bound to (TextMate). I’m not entirely new to vim but my vim-foo is limited and I’m certainly not proficient enough at it to make vim my full time editor.
Anyway, a few things I needed to figure out quick to make my stay in vim a little more comfortable was some basic setting to make it feel a bit more like home and mac the move from emacs-like editors a little less jarring. Line numbers, syntax coloring and mouse movements will certainly help.
So in my .vimrc file I added the following lines
That feels a little more like home. And don’t worry, I will never be dependent on the mouse, I just need it while I get used to moving around.
