      unable to be built from sources

      This is mostly up to person who compiles. I hate seeing issues similar to “I can’t compile”.

      If you were to wrote >not properly documented compilation process<, I could understand your struggles.

        That is correct, i adjusted the article.

        When I first read the title, I thought it was going to be more of a beef than the chronic it turned out to be. In any case, it actually surprises me that after ten years using modal editing he actually says that:

        There’s a steep learning curve in Vim and seeing all those modern IDEs become better at understanding the user’s intent, editing text became way easier and faster in general.

        I did not find vim to have a learning curve that steep: it can be painful at first, but you are probably fine the second week already, and being productive after a single month. And even if it is easier at first to use an IDE, I have never seen anyone be faster working in PyCharm than someone in vim, for example.

          Being productive after a single month of using Vim? It is, or might be true. But how much productive? After 3 years of using Vim (ime), I think I’m nowhere productive as I would be in perhaps 7 more years of using it. It’s not that Vim has a steep learning curve, but rather it offers so much that even with 10 years usage, you do not fully understand it’s power. And that is what the author is talking about.

            Absolutely, after all practice makes perfect, especially in something like vim where muscular memory is key. What I meant when I said you can be productive in a month is that you can actually use it in your workflow: in my experience, after a month using Emacs you are probably still overwhelmed and cannot fully integrate it in your workflow (imho has a much steeper learning curve).

          2. 1

            Then again you can always have vim like modal editing in PyCharm, and be doubly as productive!

              Oh c’mon that is obviously cheating in this scenario.

              (/s, but I meant vanilla IDE shortcuts like OP for comparison!)

            GithubContributionsiOS deserve some love, shows GitHub contribution graph in a beautiful way. There is also app for Apple Watch.

              I did something similar but in Ruby. I use it currently to generate static files for my blog, since Jekyll was overkill. It is very simple and there is room for improvement. It’s based on generate-md [1], great support for theming and config[2].
