      What are some alternatives to SpaceVim and Vim?
      Spacemacs
      Since version 0.101.0 and later Spacemacs totally abolishes the frontiers between Vim and Emacs. The user can now choose his/her preferred editing style and enjoy all the Spacemacs features. Even better, it is possible to dynamically switch between the two styles seamlessly which makes it possible for programmers with different styles to do seat pair programming using the same editor.
      Neovim
      Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to: simplify maintenance and encourage contributions, split the work between multiple developers, enable the implementation of new/modern user interfaces without any modifications to the core source, and improve extensibility with a new plugin architecture.
      ReSharper
      It is a popular developer productivity extension for Microsoft Visual Studio. It automates most of what can be automated in your coding routines. It finds compiler errors, runtime errors, redundancies, and code smells right as you type, suggesting intelligent corrections for them.
      Atom-IDE
      A collection of Atom UIs to support language services as part of Atom IDE, designed for use with packages built on top of atom-languageclient.
      Vim-Plug
      A minimalist Vim plugin manager.

      cli 환경에 익숙 해지지 위해 리눅스를 자주 쓰려고 했는데, 많이들 추천 하는 에디터가 vim 이 였다. 맨 처음에는 불편했는데, 플러그인 다는 재미가 솔솔 했다. 결국 플러그인도 많이 안쓰게 되더라...vim 자체를 잘 안쓰게 되는 거 일지도, 항상 잘하고 싶지만 잘 안쓰게 되는 에디터 인것 같다.

      Vim lets me edit the Markdown content of the Hugo powered site with ease. The low bandwidth needs means I can remote in and get changes updated without issues.

      Tool a while to get used to but one of the best things I have learnt recently, great training from Drew Neil over at VimCasts.

      Our developers use Vim, which is great for remote pair programming. We even have a server—Bruizer—set up to host shared terminal sessions.
