I’m a quitter. I quit using Vico the text editor for Mac that replicates many of Vim’s features in a Mac-like UI. (Earlier post on the subject)


I had a big day of coding last week and found myself flipping to Sublime Text to deal with a tricky multi-line selection. I was surprised to find out in the few months since I’d left Sublime Text it had received a multitude of updates and fixes. The tabs work and look better. It became difficult to switch back to Vico that day, and a this Monday when I needed to write a lot of code I went straight for Sublime Text.

Vico was very good and I was certainly faster. I could write code faster when I wasn’t having to learn a new keyboard command. And that was basically the problem, I got sick of learning. Yeah, I have to reach over and use the touchpad every few minutes while editing, but since I do that already in this (MarsEdit) and Google documents and any other edit window that is not Vico it seemed strange to have to switch my mind to vim editing.
