VIM cheatsheet

A cheatsheet for vom can be found here. I find this quite useful to begin with this powerful editor. The most important keys, if you just want to edit a file are:

  • i insert
  • esc exit insert mode
  • j move cursor down
  • k move cursor up
  • h move cursor left
  • l move cursor right
  • :w write (append the filename)
  • :q quit
  • :q! quit and do not save changes
