Terminal Integration

  • Mark McDonnell


Although there are graphical user interface (GUI) versions of Vim, the original software was designed primarily around running Vim from the terminal environment. You’ll typically find that when you become comfortable using Vim, your workflow naturally tends to shift toward working more and more within the terminal environment as well. You’ll start to take an interest in more Unix/Linux-based commands (such as navigating through your file system and manipulating files and content), instead of using a separate suite of GUI applications.
