I'm using #vim-plug and a few different plugins I've found to try and get a similar setup to what I had in Atom, but honestly feel a little lost and somewhat like I'm in over my head.
Anyone have some good resources for editor migrants like me? Anything that will help the transition is very welcome!
@gabe Vim-plug is great but it's easy to get overloaded with plugins. What specific functionality are you missing?
@bilbono Honestly the main *features* I'm missing currently are autoclosing of html tags, automatic indentation (indent works, outdent does not), and something similar to File Icons (https://atom.io/packages/file-icons) for NerdTree.
However, I also feel like maybe I need to get more familiar with vim itself, like maybe I'm missing things because I just don't know enough about how vim works, how vim is supposed to work/be used, etc.
@gabe I haven't done HTML tag completion before but I suspect there's a plugin somewhere for that. As for file icons, that might be a pain to set up. As far as I know you have to set your terminal to use a specific patched font with the icons you want.
But you're right it does take time to fully grok vim. Just keep using it! This book is a great resource too https://pragprog.com/book/dnvim2/practical-vim-second-edition
