Vim your Python, Python your Vim

Translations: en en


Miroslav Šedivý (@eumiro)


What do you use to write source code, docs, books or e-mails? Single brain, single pair of hands, single keyboard, but a different keyboard layout for each language and a different text editor for each purpose?


Do you use an IDE to work on Python code, then switch to an e-mail client to write a message, then open a different editor to work on the documentation and finally ssh to a remote server to edit a configuration file? Do you switch languages frequently or are your colleagues named Müller, François, Muñoz or even Šedivý?

I'll show you how I am happily typing in several languages on a single standard US keyboard layout and why my CapsLock became so useful.

I'll show you how I use a single editor on all my machines to produce all sorts of text, especially Python code with a few useful plugins.

I'll show you my own plugin written in Python to hack my e-mails far beyond imagination.
