Vim Tips and Tricks Session at the Tel Aviv Linux Club

On 15-June-2008, the Tel Aviv Open Source Club met to hold a session of sharing tips and tricks for the Vim editor.

The Material from the Presentation


  • Assigning Konqueror-like Firefox Shortcuts - these are called keywords in Firefox terminology. Start firefox, go to a page with a search box (say the Vim wikia), press the right-mouse button, and select “Add a Keyword for this Search”. Then select a name for the bookmark, and a keyword (say “vim” for our example) and where to put it. Then you can type “vim unicode” at the address bar (accessible using Alt+D) to search using this keyword.

    See this page in about “smart keywords” for more information.
