Django, VIM and SnippetsEmu on TTYShare

3 July 2007 No Comment


I remember watching the first screencasts of Ruby on Rails and seeing class structures appear as the author was typing and it was almost like “fill in the blanks” – then I found out it was Textmate, then I found it was a Mac only thing.. that left me out – anyways (Nacho libre spanish accent), who cares I am a systems admin right?

Yes, I still trudged around in my daily grind jealous of the textmate crowd and waiting for something similar… then e-texteditor appeared for Windows and Scribus appeared for Linux – the Textmate equivalents for each respective OS.

I have now used them both and I find them too slow – I had been using Notepad++ & Gedit which are both quite fast.

I have been spending more and more time with vim ever since I read this great introduction to what it really can do. So today, I was looking for some Django + VIM goodness, which led me to this from the Django Site, which led me to this (emulate Textmate’s snippet expansion), which led me to this:


All are great links on how to use vim with textmate style snippets for Django. I imagine a wxpython one probably isn’t too far away either. I recently switched to using Gvim on Windows in my continued search for finding tools that I can use wherever I am. So, I haven’t set snippetsEmu up yet but I will report back when I do.

It also answered another question I had about recording tty input – that site can be found here
