The other week Harry Roberts wrote Vim for people who think things like Vim are weird and hard (a really good read if you haven’t read it yet) and so I thought I’d share my own Vi/Vim cheat sheet.
This is the website of Andy Carter a PHP and jQuery web developer in the Steel City. Working with CakePHP (and a bit of Textpattern and Drupal too).

Another good post from Harry Roberts, this time it’s why you should consider using Vim as your text editor of choice.
The mere concept of Vim is alien enough for most people to just end up dismissing or ridiculing it, but—if we’re to be objective—the fact that, yes, people still use an editor that is over 20 years old (in turn based on a tool from the 70s), and those people number in the hundreds of thousands, perhaps they might be onto something.
Personally I tend to work with Sublime Text as my main text editor, but dip into Vi/Vim often. Once you’ve learnt a handful of commands it starts to quickly become a powerful tool and it is well worth investing some time getting familiar with.
My arc_meta Textpattern plugin has been updated with new tags for meta robots and keywords.
I’ve recently discovered Jack Franklin’s gulp-load-plugins plugin for Gulp and it’s really neat. Rather than have to specify each plugin, gulp-load-plugins will search your packages.json file and automatically include them as plugins.pluginName(). It has become my new favourite Gulp plugin.
A beginners guide to the task runner Gulp. Taking a look at why you should use it and why it is possibly better than Grunt.
