How does Vim compare to a modern text editor such as VS Code? (Response to DistroTube’s Vim video)

1 429 views | 14 Jan. 2021

I just watched

I just watched DistroTube’s video “Vim Can Save You Hours of Work” [1] in which DT compared Vim to “traditional” text editors. This leaves us with a question: How does Vim compare to a “modern” text editors, such as VS Code?

In many text-editor discussions where Vim is involved, I saw a lot of focus on Vim’s features that the other text editor is missing, without mentioning features in the other editor that can make up for its lack of Vim-specific feature.

This video is not meant to be a competition; it is meant to highlight the different approaches these editors take to improve your editing experience. I would love to see similar videos showing these editing tasks with other editors I never used as well: Emacs, IntelliJ, Sublime Text, etc.

I wanted to emphasize that modern text editors, Vim included, all have the ability to save you a lot of time. But at one point, efficiency at editing text will come down to your own skills and familiarity, and not your choice of editor.

I’m an ex-Vim user (using Vim as my primary editor for over 6 years) and now using VS Code as my primary editor for 3 years. Still, I find myself using Vim a lot, and learning Vim definitely helped me level-up as a developer. In my opinion, learning Vim for me still is worth every effort.

VIM on a mobile phone without real keyboard? Does it make even sense? The entire point of VIM is to have all your 10 fingers on your keyboard, without moving them up.

I thought this was going to be a vim hit piece but the more I watched. The more I enjoyed.

I do feel like VSCode needs a macro feature one of these days but for the time being I use the vim for VSCode extension when I have an itch for a macro. Highly recommend that extension for people who miss vim

This is a really good video! I was also narrow minded about text editors and this holy war until I tried out some of them (sublime, atome, vscod, vim). I am asking myself if there is a way to make more more functionality comparison between text editors. Thanks again, I learned a lot of things!

Honestly, most of the tasks he tried to accomplish can be performed in a simpler manner within VIM itself. Creating a macro to delete double quotes is WAY overkill.

Nice video. But what really improved my editing speed was text-objects (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlR5gYd6um0) not the stuff demonstrated in the videos.
