Xcode 13 Vim Mode

Published on June 15, 2021
One of my favorite new features of Xcode 13 is support for Vim key bindings. In this episode we will see how to enable this and I'll give a quick tour of how to get around using Vim.

My Vim Configuration

Currently I use [Neovim], which is a more modern, backward compatible vim implementation.

To install it:

brew install neovim

Or install regular vim

brew install vim

You can find my vimrc here, just keep in mind that I recommend starting from scratch and adding commands a few at a time as you need them. A bloated vimrc is a quick way to become frustrated with the whole experience.

This episode uses Xcode 13.0-beta1.
