How do I make VIM into an IDE?
I have been trying all day to for example get autocomplete to work.
Like I want suggestions of class functions. This is literally all I'm missing with VIM.
YouCompleteMe isn't what I'm looking for since it only completes the current string.
Also multiple buffers? Change files quickly?
How do I make this work?
How do I get more functionality?
How do I get the functionality I want?
Also general VIM thread.
This right here is what I want.
Why doesn't YouCompleteMe provide me with this? Is it so hard??
Do YCM give that functionality but it doesn't work in big projects or what gives?
Just takes me to the top of the document...?
Doesn't work in normal nor insert mode
Hey man, name calling isn't nice. No one wants to be called a nigger, not ever. Not even niggers [spoiler]zozzle[/spoiler]
VIM vs emacs guys start a race war
Well if you need to use it as an IDE there are a few steps.
But it's excellent to create one-file-projects.
Also when you get to the hustle to make it into an IDE it's very portable. You just take your .vimrc with you.
Emacs in evil mode, might be easier to just use spacemacs if you're starting out so there's less setup needed. Vim has the superior controls and modes are great but vimscript is shit. Meanwhile elisp is great and allows you to write all the necessary plugins easily.
Vim and emacs don't have any bloat you don't need but allow you to customise the editor to everyones needs. This means everyone can build their editor to their liking. Obviously it means there are some plugins that almost everyone has but you don't have to install them if you don't want to or you can write your own ones if there isn't anything that you like.
nnoremap Q @q
perfect for throwaway macros. Just hit qq to start recording, then q to stop, and then hit Q when you're ready to go.
And you waste nothing by mapping over Q because it's just a short cut to ex mode, which is worse than useless for most users
