I’m a Un✪x shell and Vi[m] user since 1986 and after years, my environment settings become messy. I never have to clean up because I was the only one using it. … and it was so convenient.
But now, I’m about to persuade my colleague to use vim for better pair programming. We started with a newly created user on a macMini running OS X.
Quickly, it turns out that my beloved environment becomes a hurdle. Everything I want to show to my colleague doesn’t work (out of the box) on his machine. This was so annoying that I came to a hard, but I think healthful, decision.
I start my environment from scratch
- returned to bash from fish.
- added the most needed configurations ans vim-plug ins only.
- made Gists for the files.
Compared to my grown environment settings, this seems to be almost empty and fits in my head again 😁.
