Gonzalo Ayuso's Blog:
My VIM configuration for PHP development
January 03, 2011 @ 13:50:35

In a search for his perfect development environment (note "his" not "the") Gonzalo Ayuso has taken another look at vim in a new post to his blog with some handy plugins and commands he's found so far.

Keeping on with my continuous search for the perfect IDE I've resumed my fight against VIM. As someone told me the learning of vim is a road of pain. It's something like going to the gym. We known that going to the gym is good and healthy but it's hard and painfully especially at the beginning. The learning curve of vim is hard. [...] VIM is not my default IDE yet. I hope to swap to VIM soon but I feel myself slower when I code comparing with Netbeans or ZendStudio, and slow means less productive but I also feel if invest more time vim can be really productive.

He points out these plugins and commands:

  • NerdTree
  • the "buffer explorer"
  • using Zen Coding
  • using the debugger (along with XDebug)
  • snipMate
  • using omni completion
  • supertab
  • and a few more various, useful commands...
