Auto-expand abbreviations in Vim

vim autocomplete, or really, autoexpand abbreviations

All about shortcuts as well as abbreviations:

To set abbreviations only for insert mode (which seems a little safer) add to your .vimrc file (or in Agaric's case, an included .vimrc-agaric file with all our Drupal and other development-specific additions) abbreviations in the format iab abbr abbreviation.

Vi Text Editor

The Vi (and its successor Vim, for Vi improved) text editor for Unix, GNU-Linux, and Mac OS X systems is a way to edit text files, including configuration, PHP, or HTML documents, through the command line interface. This includes, of course, using SSH to connect to a server.

To use it with even a minimum of efficiency, though, you need to know a fair number of its cheat codes– err, keyboard shortcuts.

These are resources the Agaric Designe Collective found useful (when we started out, now of course we can type sonnets and ASCII art on the command line in our sleep).
