Cool Vim/ViEmu video!

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

Aaron Jensen is a vi/vim lover and a long time customer of ViEmu – several programmers on his team use the various versions of the product.

He’s now preparing some vi/vim-tutorial screencasts, and he’s posted a teaser screencast, which has a great soundtrack and is awesome to watch:

Cool! revamped

I’ve updated the design of’s home page, mainly in order to incorporate a sidebar with a few goodies and a “testimonials” page:

Hear what others are saying about ViEmu!

The reasoning is that ViEmu has received a lot of praise and love over the last years, and I wanted this to be shown on the main page. Some people might feel they are the only ones interested in such a product, and the truth is that they are members of a now pretty large brotherhood. Having a small pic and a link to the worldwide ViEmu customer map also helps in that department. I feel that the new home page reflects the ViEmu customer base and activity better than the previous, “drier” one.

I chose to only include web testimonials – stuff that has been posted to blogs and web pages. It lends more credibility and is more verifiable than text-only excerpts from emails, and there is plenty of material just on that medium. Some of the emails I receive are almost love letters. Even the comments on the testimonials page are so utterly flattering that they are almost embarrassing! Have a look if you want to see customer love in action.

_why used my vi/vim cheat sheet!

_why, the author of the awesome “Why’s (poignant) guide to Ruby“, just used my vi/vim cheatsheet on his hackety blog.

Can you believe it? I’m immensely proud.

This guy is a hero among the Ruby crowd. I love his style, although I’m not sure he is mentally very sane. His creativity is amazing in any case. Be sure to check out his stuff, if only to take a walk on the edge of the programming world.
