Announcing Vim Reference Guide, free/discount offers and more


I am pleased to announce my twelfth ebook Vim Reference Guide. This is intended as a concise learning resource for beginner to intermediate level Vim users. It has more in common with cheatsheets than a typical text book. Topics like Regular Expressions and Macros have more detailed explanations and examples due to their complexity. I hope this guide would make it much easier for you to discover Vim features and learning resources than my own blundering experience.

Release offers

To celebrate the book release, you can download it for FREE till 31-Mar-2022: Vim Reference Guide

Some of my ebooks and bundles are on sale as well till 31-Mar-2022:

Video playlist

I'm currently creating short 1-3 minute videos highlighting handy Vim features.

I also made a 3.5 minute video about the guide.

Vim prank

Did you know that Vim has an "easy" mode? It can be rather hard to use for those already familiar with Vim modes. I wrote a blog post about this mode, which was interesting enough to reach front page of Hacker News!
