Create custom keybindings in vim

Vincent Danen

June 02, 2009

This week's TechMail is Create custom keybindings in vim which goes into how to tweak vim's keybindings to make them more familiar if you come from another editor. It's also useful to create shortcuts for things such as moving to the end of a line. I've been using joe for over 10 years and while I've used vim 90% of the time for the last few years, it always irritated me that you had to hit "ESC" then "$" then "i" and then the right arrow to get to the true end-of-line, especially when I was used to joe's "CTRL-E" to get me there. So making vim do the same thing was a piece of cake, and this tip shows you how to do it.
