Also back to vi... MacVim actually

Some of my friends are going back to vi like me, for instance Hibernate’s Emmanuel and IzPack’s Julien. I also mentioned a few good links about that move on the French Les Castcodeurs podcast. And to be precise, I’m using MacVim on my MacBook Pro laptop, but also vim on the command-line.

Emmanuel and Julien gave some good tips and links too, and like Julien, I’m going to show you my current .vimrc in case anyone’s interested:

let g:mapleader=","
