Learning more Vim paid off the other day. I edited a couple files on a remote server using my T-Mobile G1 along with the ConnectBot program. The process was, of course, pretty simple.
- Start ConnectBot on the G1.
- Connect to the server.
- cd to the directory containing the file I wanted to edit.
- Type vim <name of file>
- Edit as usual (remembering that ESC is two trackball presses…that one got me at first)
- Save file
- Check results on Browser, if desired
Pretty easy! Using an editor with windows, tabs, and syntax coloring on a phone gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling.
