    use hjkl as often as you can, it really helps. only go in insert mode if you want to write something, always go back to normal with ESC.

    I can recommend the app vim masters (on android). It is a quiz for vim commands at all difficulty levels that you can do on the train or something.

    Try vimtutor (a textfile which you get wehn installing vim).
    And just force yourself to use vim.
    Vim browser plugins / qutebrowser are also very interesting.

    Use it. Just like that. At first it'll be tough, you'll google a lot. But after some time, you'll start using few basic movements like a boss, so you can try more tough combos (like my personal favorite gg=G for code reindent).

    Note #1: Don't be sad if you will just repeat combos from i ternet, you will undrestand them later

    Note #2: Once you start automatically using Vim controls on other programs, your tranformation is complete

    Good luck.

    @fun2code "Neovim is an extension of Vim: feature-parity and backwards-compatibility are high priorities." - https://neovim.io/
    So yes, plugins are compatible

    @succcubbus I never understood Neovim. I know it was rewritten from scratch and it's because of maintanability, but does it affect me as user? No. And besides, most stuff from Vim works there, but not all.

    1st thing you need:
    Press esc, type :h(elp), enter. Read as much as possible. Exit with :wq (save & quit), or :q! (hard exit)

    2nd thing you need:
