I’m learning to use the vim text editor. Came across something useful: the vim cheatsheet. If you search duckduckgo.com for “vim cheatsheet” there’s some instant answer goodness that displays a listing of the vim commands and what they do.

Because that is definitely the immediate challenge that confronts people new to vim. These blog posts are written in markdown.
Most people don’t use the Caps Lock key, except by mistake. Here’s how to make that key useful by remapping it to something else. This guide is for the Cinnamon desktop environment.

To get out of the insert mode, you press the “esc” key.
