What do you like best?

The best thing about vim is that it is a lightweight code text editor that will allow speed editing and is based on mac terminal so it's nice to use, with awesome plugins available it makes the code editiing even better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The disliking features of Vim is that it doesn't have an autocomplete feature and no proper text wrapping features unlike other idle text editors, no proper GUI debugger is also present in this code text editor, and also the key bindings for the new users might be hectic to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While using vim I would like to advise that users must first learn the key bindings as it will initially be very difficult to memorize the key bindings and work smoothly on the code base with efficiency. Then they will be able to relate to the Linux environment and will get accustomed to the vim text editor. Then they can work on different projects and will not require a long loading time. The text editor will be a very good text editor for beginners as well as for pro editors as those who are designing big projects and will increase the scalability of the project. It will be easily digestible to the users and can make students and developers understand the code.Copying/pasting using multiple buffers.

Searching and mass replacing, with the option to use regular expressions and select distinct areas without annoying pop-up windows that hide the results themselves. Multiple ways to perform batch/repetitive jobs. Efficient handling of huge files. Handling the code as logical segments, rather than just a series of characters. This allows very fast navigation, jumping to marks, specific lines, code blocks with minimal effort. Recognizing numbers by their value and not just by their alphabetical display (ie, when sorting/inc/decreasing).

Diff-ing files, side by side. Script customizations and add-ons. OK, that’s somewhat advanced, but there are so many resources out there on the internet that you hardly ever have to write a script on your own. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem I am currently solving with vim is regarding an algorithmic problem where I was supposed to find the points that are present on the plane with lie in a bounded region with region coordinates provided.

The vim helped me in quick editing of the code as Visual Studio Code might take time in loading whereas the Vim code editor quickly loads up and thus enables us to edit quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the fact that you can speed up coding and editing texts in comparison to other text editors. It allows you to do fast editing and is almost similar to notepad++. I also like the fact that it does not freeze as often Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It does not have a good support system outside of its forums.There forums provide very generic and basic support but cannot be compared to real customer service. Vim is also quite difficult to use and does not have exciting features featured on Microsoft visual Studio. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I a not solving any problems in particular, however there have been many great benefits with Vim. The vim text editor is fast, extensible and lightweight which makes it an excellent app to use as a text editor and it is also value for price. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This code editor is very flexible and above all, unlike other editors, it allows us to give orders by means of key combinations or be remote through graphic interfaces that are operated to a greater extent using the keyboard, which allows us to manage servers in terminal mode remote in conjunction with command commands to be performed on the other interface, this editor allows us to use scripting as well as automatic tillage through the use of macros, this editor allows us to edit, compile and correct in real time as it also has a spell checker from your command library or analyze the last most used commands we have used Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This editor is good for more advanced code editing but needs to be continuously updated, and learning to use with the keyboard its use is possibly more difficult than others Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For full use and know all the tools of this editor if I recommend taking courses and watching tutorials since learning all its functions if it is a little more difficult Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This editor is commonly used in the programming of remote servers in which we have to do multiple programming from the terminal, either sending data orders or leaving working through macros in time lapses either for debugging or making copies of the bases of data, its use of commands by means of the keyboard from terminal allows us a greater control to the operating systems of the remote servers, where we maintain and install pre-established scripts Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I think vim is a pretty good text editor out there for unix based development. I like it's code auto completion feature, color coding for key words, and just how simple it is to use. In nano, I have had a lot of issues with the first letters of the words not typing, saving files in the right format etc. I have had none of those issues with vim. It's very reliable, and you can just type in "vim ~filename~" on the command line, and it launches. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Since it is a text editor, it has a very basic and unattractive layout. I think this is the right tool for more of muscle-memory kind of work, as oppose to click and drag like IDEs. Auto-suggest does not work as well as I thought it would either. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It really is about figuring out where vim is the right tool to use, and where an IDE-like environment is good to use. If you need debugging tools, etc. then vim might not be the best choice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use vim for code refactoring and file management in unix and unix-like systems. It is very very fast to use, and is the right tool for simple text editing, text highlighting and running on remote machines. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Even with just a slight knowledge of Vim commands, working with text files became much easier than in simple text editors. Vim allows to open not only a text documents, but any kind of type files, and then browse their content e.g. in binary mode. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It takes some time to learn how to use and memorize all the possibilities Vim offers. Almost every key on the keyboard has its unique use, and could be used in different ways when combined with other ones. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do not try to use Vim before learning it properly. Although there are many tutorials online, for me the best learning material was Vimtutor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Editing big text files was a nightmare, but vim allows to record macros, which automate the boring job. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Vim es un gran editor de comandos que maneja varias syntaxis muy útil para dar ordenes y manejar servidores remotos que normalmente están en Linux, permite comparación de ficheros inserción lineas de orden múltiples comandos, para usar el programa no se requiere mucha experiencia, ya que es medianamente fácil usarlo. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Normalmente se necesita cierto nivel de experiencia con el programa para poder usarlo en toda su capacidad pero por lo general es relativamente bueno para lo que se necesita pero si le falta desarrollo aun sobre todos para otros distintos sistemas operativos y hacer su uso todavía mas fácil. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Para estar totalmente familiarizado con el programa les recomendaria tener cierto nivel de practica con los trabajos que estén realizando, el programa es intuitivo a las lineas de comandos pero también no esta de mas ver algunos tutoriales ya que con ellos podrían ampliar su conocimiento del manejo de este editor lo que les ayudara a tener un buen desempeño en los trabajos que estén realizando para su empresa. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cuando trabajamos con Vim nos resulta sencillo usarlo, ya que solo se necesita un poco de costumbre en su manejo, al igual que cuando vamos insertando ordenes de comandos y comparando archivos para los servidores remotos, nos permite ir viendo los posibles errores que pudiéramos tener rápidamente, el programa es de por si intuitivo pero se requiere cierto nivel de practica, no a ayudado mucho tiempo de trabajo y tener un buen desempeño en lo general.

What do you like best?

Vim is a customizable editor with a variety of tools to meet your needs. It has automatic correction, error list, set compiler, automatic syntax and conversion to HTML. On the other hand, it also offers comfort in terms of visualization, since it has the capacity to divide the windows, either vertically or horizontally, in addition to being able to change their size. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I consider that Vim is a program for expert or advanced developers, since it requires some customization for its quantity of functionalities and configurations, however, this is compensated by the great material of tutorials that are available about commands, which I don't find easy to memorize. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This editor has the development environment with excess customization. It will take time to learn how to use it, but after you have mastered all your commands, programming has never been so easy. I recommend downloading and installing Vim to make the world of open source a better world. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Vim is an editor that benefits me with productivity, since I am used to using Windows terminals such as Powershell or the Windows command line, so it saves me a lot of time programming with keys and commands to move through the code that is being developed in the moment.

With VIM you don't move with your move but with your mouse, not with the arrow key, but with H, J, K, L.It's makes your coding process 10x more fast, because you don't have to use your mouse or arrow key that far away from your keyboard that your hand usually rest on.

What do you like best?

Vim is a great text editor, especially for the PHP language and web development. I like the design of its interface, since with its colors I can identify the code easily. It has good tools to improve autocomplete and also has suggestions for syntax. I also like that you have complete documentation about each function you have. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, it is difficult to install add-ons due to the fact that the software indicates error messages due to connection failure, however, the network is stable. Therefore, I must close and open the editor again to request the add-on again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend Vim, because it is open source, it consumes few computer resources and offers all the tools to edit your projects like any other software, but free of charge. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Vim allows me to edit the code of the projects that I carry out in the office where I work, in an organized and personalized way.

The learning curve is very steep, you gotta work a lot to learn which is not trivial for every user. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

When we want to edit files and data packages in our remote servers most of them with linux, we use vim, since it allows multiple functions of code handling when making or writing commands or text lines as well as multiple code inserts of a very easy way, since at the same time it allows us to correct our mistakes, in fact it is something simple to use for this type of tasks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Well, it is a program that has everything for the edition of code in our linux servers, it would only be necessary to add that it needs to have access to some file terminations since I would like to edit different code with this same program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When you need to edit code in the remote linux servers we use this code editor many times to avoid errors but it is advisable to practice with it and see some tutorials about the options it has, otherwise it is very good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we edit code it is very good to make the corrections because in our task it is important not to have errors, here in Cisco we have it installed on almost all local computers and servers since we work in code editing very often, as always we edit source codes and for us it is important to have a lightweight software that allows editing, compiling and correcting quickly, very useful in our local and remote servers Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

VIM is not a simple plaintext editor, it's a complete and powerful tool to develop all kinds of code with a maximum performance. There are countless plugins you can load to perform different tasks, highlight the different parts of the code in function of the language, compile it from the same windows, autocomplete the words while is written, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No és fàcil començar amb VIM perquè requereix moltes hores de proves i cal buscar a Internet per acostumar-s'hi. A part d'això, és bastant complicat personalitzar l'editor, ja que s'ha d'escriure un codi específic per fer cada modificació. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

VIM is the perfect text editor, since it allows you to develop code without touching the mouse, so you can develop it much faster. There are a great community behind that creates content to improve it constantly creating new modules and features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Vim works seamlessly with the terminal making it easy to switch between them. Also, it is very configurable which makes it adaptable to every dev making it efficient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is somewhat hard to learn at first, and it is different from any other code editor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Start with a regular editor first and then try vim, maybe something hybrid like MacVim first (in which you can still use the mouse to select things). Then force you to learn one new Vim skill per week. You'll quickly get used to it and will see the advantages of using it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Vim is the IDE I personally like the most. It's the fastest of all that have such great powerful functionality. It's being used both by developers and administrators, it's very convenient when you are remotely connected to the server. Once you get used to the commands I promise you'll not quit it. There are highlighting, autocomplete plugins available which I use. If you are new to Vim try "vimtutor" to get started. That's how I've learned it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I personally don't like that for customization you have to use external plugins and also writing your own one can be tricky. It's also difficult for new learners, for example if you switch from another editor especially from GUI editor it will be extremely difficult to get used to it if don't have experience. Many people will just quit trying after 10 minutes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you feel courageous enough to try it you'll fell in love. It's free and I think it's a standard when you work remotely on the server. Even if you don't want to use it in your daily work, consider learning it as some time it may be useful for you especially if you work with servers or you work remotely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

VIM is an amazing IDE with a basic(but powerful) GUI installed by default in Linux and MAC operative systems. It is designed for highly skilled profiles as it is hard to use at the beginning. However, once you dominate the basic commands, you rapidly start to feel comfortable with VIM. A huge community of developers sustain vim, and there are lots of plugins for improving the software capabilities. Apart from that, this IDE also allows modifying files in servers through SSH. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about VIM. It is simply perfect. However, if I have to mention some handicap, I would mention the difficulties of learning it from scratch, if you compare it with other user-friendly IDEs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I know that it can be hard when you start, but it is worth giving it more than 10 chances, you will not regret. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm editing files and creating code with VIM all the time (C++, Python, LaTeX, Bash...) moving through servers and terminals all the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
