Installing Vim in VSCode

If you haven’t installed VSCodeVim now is the time to do it.

  • Open command palette with CMD-SHIFT-P on Mac CTRL-SHIFT-P on Windows/Linux.
  • Type Extension
  • Select Extensions: Install Extension
  • Type vim
  • Install the first extension that pops up (vscodevim).

When you’ve done that come back to this editor. Your cursor should no longer be a | but a rectangle.

:O

Now let’s take it for a quick ride. Jump to the next chapter.
