Jilano30874191dSounds reasonable. Just because you like a certain tool doesn't mean to life has to revolve around it.
asgs9362191dYou are not going to ditch IDEs no matter what (unless you quit programming)
Olverine5741191dVim is great but depending on what you're working on, it probably won't be a good alternative to a proper IDE. Most IDEs have a vim plugin so you can get the best of both worlds!
netikras26367191dit's a nice way to say "I have VIM on full-screen and I have no idea how to exit it and use my IDE again; I estimate that could take a day or two"
impune-pl157191dVim is great text editor, like vs code, atom or sublime (but faster and more fun).
It's not an IDE though, unless you add ton of plugins to it.
devTea25682191dUse vim extension on your favorite IDE, then you got best of both worlds
lun0213190di think a day is not enough, like any other stuff you switch from what you are accustomed to use. tried that too and it was not worth it, because i need productivity and get shit done. another example would be when i switched to 60% keyboard, struggled for 2 months, now it is awesome.
my point is that some things work out, some not. good luck.
