PHPBuilder.com:
Using Vim for Your PHP Development
September 23, 2010 @ 09:13:07

On PHPBuilder.com today Jason Gilmore has an introductory tutorial to using the popular vim editor for your PHP development with more that just the basic features.

When you choose a streamlined IDE, you forfeit the visual bells and whistles usually found in many commercial products but you gain the ability to write, organize and refactor code as quickly as you can type. For millions of developers around the globe, that IDE is Vim, and in this article I'll show you how Vim can help you to write PHP code faster than ever before.

He starts with the basics - what vim is and how to start it up - and shows how you can use the command-line inside of the editor to do things like a simple search and replace. He also shows how to edit multiple files, set up PHP command completion and how to use the Project plugin to make it easier to find files without having to leave the editor.

If you're looking for more detailed information on using vim in your development, check out this presentation from Andrei Zmievski or these tips from Matthew Weier O'Phinney.
