Vim and Ruby

leave a comment »

Have been doing some work of late using my favorite editor VIM. A life-changing article or series of tips is this page. Using Vim with and a programming language like Ruby, makes a very powerful combination.

So I do part of my work in Vim itself, using its powerful regular expressions and other features. Once I am done in Vim, I run a ruby program over the file and my job is done.

Ruby has its glitches here and there, but still very powerful. And great fun. And very productive, especially for someone coming from the verbose world of Java. So it looks like my days (years) with Java are over! Phew !
