I re-recorded some videos because the originals weren’t so great :) Rather than delete them, I’ve just moved them into the deprecated section.
once again, thanks for these great videos.
Can I ask you for a “Which kind of plugins exist for Vim (color schemes, snippets and so on) and how to install them” series?
I know, for you it can be simple, but, just to let you understand, on the “XP’s Snippet Template” page, in the installation section it is wrote:
“copy files into runtime path.
And you need at least these 2 setting on :
filetype plugin on ”
Now, a “pro” like me first say: «runtime what?»
Lastly: «hmm, let’s hope Derek will make a “how to install plugins” series or I will continue to exercise with “Basic Movements part 2″»
I’ve got two videos next on my list (I hope to do them in the next few days): “Welcome to Vim” to create the absolute beginner introduction thing that should be seen before basic movement and then “the runtime directory” that will be a prelude to plugins, so it’s coming soon!
Great! Thanks so much Derek.
Btw, I would contact you by the contact form in the bottom right corner of the web site but the Captcha doesn’t appear. There is just the field but not the image.
I have a simple question about: (Deprecated) Basic Editing (Screencast 1). You inserted some line numbers. The steps that I traced out are as follows (2:12 minutes into the video):
step 1) 20 o
step 2) Inserted “i” with the number one with a comma: 1,
step 3) Hit escape twice. Results the number “1,” repeated 20 times. Well, actually I heard the keyboard being hit once (not twice). Not sure if you have a bind for it. However, hitting ESC twice works for me.
step 4) CTRL-V (vb mode or CTRL-Q windows) for VB mode and selected all the number ones.
Step 5) You hit. :I which resulted in: :’I
Step 6) Not sure what you hit but the line numbers were filled in.
What was done between step 5 and step 6? When I attempt to repeat your steps I get to step 5 and have: :’I
When I hit Enter I get: E492: Not an editor command: ‘I
Your results had line numbers filled in place.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry, mistyped something.
Between 5 & 6 after selecting text with VB mode you hit:
I get an error:
E492: Not an editor command :’I
What did I do incorrectly.
Ok special characters get filtered out:
E492: Not an editor command
single quote, less than sign, comma, single quote, greater than sign, I
I assume you don’t have the VisIncr plugin installed. Have a look at this video for more details.
That is correct Derek and I see know how it was done (via the video). Thank you very much.
