Best keyboard for Vim – Vim is quite easy to use, it just involves memorizing Vim editor commands and remembering what mode you’re in. If you’re used to using keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl + C and Ctrl + S, you shouldn’t have too much difficulty getting used to the way that Vim works. While there is a bit of a breaking in period with the editor, you don’t have to worry too much about accidentally deleting large swathes of text without being able to recover them since you can use the undo command multiple times.

While not for everyone, functionality like being able to work on more than one document at a time in windowed screens and the ability to do major editing without a mouse is what makes Vim so popular.


You can download the editor for free, and there are a variety of plugins and extensions that can improve its functionality and add additional Vim commands.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the best keyboard for a heavy VIM use?

Keyboard preferences are quite personal. Some people love low-travel keys and others hate them. In our office (if I can remember back to when we were in our office), many SREs / Ops folks seem fond of the old-fashion large-travel mechanical keyboards with loud acoustic and tactile feedback upon actuation (think Selectric keyboard or nearly so).

A little over a year ago I decided to splurge on a Logitech MX Keys ( Logitech MX Keys Advanced Wireless Illuminated Keyboard). Wow… Best keyboard I’ve used in many years! Once we go back to the office, I’ll probably get one for there, too (it’s much to large to take with on a bicycle commute).


Vim was made available in 1991 and is a free, open source software. Available both as a command line interface and as a standalone program with a GUI, Vim is a text editor that is a modal version of the vi editor created for Unix in the 1970s; Vim stands for vi improved. While it was designed with Unix in mind, versions of it are available for most operating systems and Vim is also available for Android and iOS smartphones.
