Vi IMproved - enhanced vi editor
http://www.vim.org/
Score:
 184
114 reviews
Description:

Vim is an almost compatible version of the UNIX editor Vi.

Many new features have been added: multi level undo, syntax highlighting, command line history, on-line help, filename completion, block operations, folding, Unicode support, etc.

This package contains a version of vim compiled with a rather standard set of features. This package does not provide a GUI version of Vim. See the other vim-* packages if you need more (or less).

5 Awesome! Beause of this, I chuckle when I read a comment like that by Hammer549. I use every and modern editors, but none -- none at all -- beats vi (or vim) when you have a dirty task at hand. If you can't see this, either you have never had something complex to accomplish with an editor, or you did it labouriously by hand when vi could have done it for you hands down.

1 Why dress up a line editor from the 60's in pretend GUI? VI (and thus Vim) is ED from the early beginning of Unix in 1969. There are many decades newer editors and programming environments such as Emacs or Eclipse

5 This is a must have application. Weird things happen when using "VI" out of the box in mint 17.2. Backspace doesn't work and arrow keys display A B C D. Do yourself a favor; install this and run command: alias vi="vim"

4 Why play a 3D game, if VIM plays as many dimensions as your harddisk has textfiles?
Everything will be difficult until you invest 30 minutes in vimtutor (not the longest 30 minutes in your live ;-)

5 Every Linux distro should come with Vim and Emacs pre-installed to make everyone happy. And those who don't know either Vim or Emacs should pick one and learn, because either one of those will probably be on all Unix command lines from the oldest of Unix PC's to the latest Linux desktop. Plus, you never know when you'll be left without a GUI ;)

5 Very powerful with lots of addons/customizability. Comes with a console version (VIM) and a GUI version (GVIM). It's modular hotkey system definitely takes a while to get used to (thankfully VIM comes with a nice interactive tutorial), but once I did I noticed a dramatic improvement in my work efficiency (programmer). I also tried the competing EMACS but found its CTRL+ hotkey system to be too strenous on my fingers and wrists. Vim all the way.

5 Vim is an extremely powerful editor! Do the tutorials and then use it everyday. You'll come to love the ability to repeat an edit, record and use macros easily, abbreviations, scripting of new actions, and the diff/merge capability. And who doesn't love the ability to highlight keywords/phrases (syntax highlighting). All this wrapped in a quick and functional text editor. What's not to love?!

5 You either love it or you hate it -- I happen to love it! There's a steep learning curve (this shouldn't scare you since you're already using Linux), but once you get the hang of things navigating and editing in Vim is super efficient compared to other editors. Once you become a Vim master, people will see your fingers flying off the keyboard and will get the impression that you're performing some kind of voodoo. I swear the experience can become almost magical.
