In this chapter, I’m going to cover a topic that it would seem most other books on the subject of Vim ignore: sessions. The principal idea behind sessions is that we’re creatures of habit, and we typically find ourselves repeating things that we know and understand. Imagine a recurring project in which you end up having the same layout open (and maybe even the same files open). Why not record that setup into a session? It’ll make getting up and running much quicker.
