- This distribution is adapted to both Vim and NeoVim. For Vim, version should be 7.3+, and 8.0+ is recommended. For NeoVim, 0.1.5+ is recommended.
- All the installations are based on Git which is a famous distributed revision control system. If you use Windows, you may need install msysgit.

Welcome to contribute to ivim, see issue #31 for details. Thank you very much for your supporting!
A good learning method of Vim is vimtutor, a 30 minute tutorial that teaches the most basic Vim functionality hands-on.
To try it, just type
To practice vim skills, you can enable hard mode, and it will disable the arrow keys, the 'hjkl' keys, the page up/down keys, and a handful of other keys which allow one to rely on character-wise navigation.
To enable it, just type
:call HardMode()in normal mode.
Another way to get familiar with Vim commands and settings is just rely on the strong help system of Vim.
It's easy and convenient to type
:helpin Vim for help of whatever you want to know.
A beautiful Vim cheat sheet is available here. If you want one, just click it!
Because I have set some key mappings for more convenient typing and checking, you may feel inconvenient with them at start. But if you get familiar with them, I'm sure you will love them.
You can just type
:mapin Vim to see them.
- Vim_Tips_Wiki is an excellent website, and you can learn much from it.
- Vimcasts publishes free screencasts about Vim. It's useful and interesting! Believe me!
Hope You Enjoy Vimming!!!
