Insert mode features, Tern.vim, and Vimprint schedule

Tuesday 28th May 2013

  • Things you can do in Insert mode

    by Dave Aitken

    Staying in insert mode is the easiest way to deny yourself access to most of vim's power, but it is still stuffed with useful features that are easily overlooked. This talk is a lightning tour to remind you of what's available, and hopefully teach you a new trick or two.

    At 7:15pm to 7:30pm, Tuesday 28th May

  • The tern plugin for Vim

    by Alex R. Young

    Tern is a code-analysis engine for JavaScript that brings type hints and better omni-completion to JavaScript developers working with Vim. In this talk you'll learn how to install Tern, and use some of the features with Node and jQuery-based projects.

    At 7:30pm to 7:30pm, Tuesday 28th May

  • Vimprint - a Vim keystroke parser

    by Drew Neil

    Wouldn't it be cool if you could visualize your keystrokes as you operated Vim? That would make it much easier to learn from other Vim users, as well as enabling you to better analyse your own Vim usage. I'd like to demonstrate my proof-of-concept prototypes, built using Ragel and Ruby. I'll talk about Vim's grammar and how it can be modelled as a Finite State Machine. I'll also make reference to a couple of projects that I've drawn inspiration from.

    At 7:50pm to 7:50pm, Tuesday 28th May
