Vim in Different IDE’s

1 minute read

VIM has become such an integral part in my little world that use it in pretty much any setting where I need to do some editing of files (source code or config files).  When programming, I usually work in one of 3 different environments (depending on the need for the project). Below you will find the plugins that I have found for each of the 3 different IDE’s I use on a regular basis:

  • Eclipse – I have spoken about the vrapper plugin on a previous post in this blog so check it out!
  • Netbeans – The jVim plugin for Netbeans is one of the many reasons why Netbeans is quickly becoming my favorite  IDE for Java, Python, PHP and Ruby.
  • Visual Studio 2010 – I recently started to work on some C/C++ applications as well as C#/ applications in this great IDE.  I missed the VIM features and found the VsVim plugin that does the job well!

VIM is great and I highly recommend it to those who are looking for an editor to do their work.  It has a pretty steep learning curve in the beginning, but stick with it and you’ll never look back!  Whatever editor you do decide to use, I would recommend that you learn it and learn it well so that it can make you the most productive developer/admin out there!!
