Highly configurable text editor built to make creating and changing any kind of text very efficient
I got into Vim at 2010 when I saw my colleague working with it and, well, he seemed to master it and I immediately noticed how powerful this is and how productive you can be with it. Result is, for almost 8 years now, no Sublime user has got me over or even gained any of my attention to other editors. And never will, because I enjoy working directly from terminal. And I want to be able to use my favourite editor from any server I ssh into.
Drop-Down terminal for Linux and Unix
This is quite recent one because I was using Guake before. Tilda won me over with stability and speed. There's not much to add: you press your hotkey and you have your beautiful, highly customizable terminal in front of you. And command line is where I spend most of my time, so quick access is important :)
Probably something you fall in love in first sight. If others in this list may need learning or tweaking and it takes some time to get used with, then this one will impress you immediately. Ofcourse, by having some configuration to it, it becomes irreplaceable in your toolchain. Here I can note vi-mode, which allows you to move around your output vi-style and do yank(copy) and also hjkl keys to move around panes:
# Use Vi style key bindings to move around copy mode setw -g mode-keys vi # Vim style bindings for pane movement bind-key -r h select-pane -L bind-key -r j select-pane -D bind-key -r k select-pane -U bind-key -r l select-pane -R # Vim-style copy/paste unbind [ bind y copy-mode unbind p bind p paste-buffer bind-key -T edit-mode-vi Up send-keys -X history-up bind-key -T edit-mode-vi Down send-keys -X history-down unbind-key -T copy-mode-vi Space ; bind-key -T copy-mode-vi v send-keys -X begin-selection unbind-key -T copy-mode-vi Enter ; bind-key -T copy-mode-vi y send-keys -X copy-pipe-and-cancel "tmux show-buffer | xsel --clipboard --input" unbind-key -T copy-mode-vi C-v ; bind-key -T copy-mode-vi C-v send-keys -X rectangle-toggle unbind-key -T copy-mode-vi [ ; bind-key -T copy-mode-vi [ send-keys -X begin-selection unbind-key -T copy-mode-vi ] ; bind-key -T copy-mode-vi ] send-keys -X copy-selection
Zsh is a shell designed for interactive use, although it is also a powerful scripting language.
Switched to zsh from bash cause of it's awesome features and plugins. Again, you need some frameworks and plugins to make it super awesome.
- oh-my-zsh - it just makes everything smooth and easy for you
- vi-mode - use vi shortcuts in command line. Life-changer, totally
- z - Access your most accessed / recent folders with ease. Awesome little thingy!
