Is learning VIM worth it?

I have some (probably unjustified) prejudices to it - I find it rather visually unattractive. But it seems to me also that it boosts productivity.

So do you recommend it and what is least painful way to learn it?

    Only superficially, yes. But only because it can be used on practically any Linux server, the same could be said of nano tho. For every day ussage I personally don't think its worth it. But mostly because my Job requires ides and for everything else i've had luck with vs code and sublime.

    @7root I think I'll try this combo as a start for learning Vim. I really like VScode

    out of the box vim is "ugly" but with this vimrc this changes quickly.

    I use pure vim only if I use the terminal (like raspberry pi), which I do a lot,

    But otherwise, I use the vim emulators/vim integration/vim something options in all editors
