Nowadays we have a much larger range of commands. We've got visual block mode, incremental search, vimrc support, marks, registers, proper vim undo support, very broad motion support, and quite a bit more.
Let me know what you think!
Why should someone be forced to change the name of their extension simply because another extension with a similar name became more popular or better?
Last time I commented on this on HN, I pointed out that the VSCodeVim group's extension had three times the number of downloads as the one called amVim. And of course it would. I speculated last time, just like I'm doing here, that this has more to do with the names chosen for the projects and the air of authority they have (VSCodeVim vs amVim) than it does with extension quality. More troubling is that recently the VSCodeVim folks changed their packaging so that it appears under the Vim name in the extension gallery and began using the official Vim logo, too. Not cool.
If so, isn't a "full disclosure" needed when speaking of a "competitive" project?
It would certainly be possible that he contributed code to the project given that.
And no, I'm not "maintaining some fork"--there's no way to submit patches on GitHub, and the only way to get changes in for most projects hosted there is to throw up a copy of your work as a remote for someone to pull from. My disdain for this workflow is already well-documented.
Pointing it out doesn't mean it was "surprising". Just that it happened -- and as such, it could be a possible conflict of interest.
"Contributor to project X trashes competitive project Y" is a different situation than "Totally unaffiliated with X and Y person, trashes Y".
Perhaps there was bad blood between the two projects, a backstory with interacting with them, etc -- in which case it would be good to know, that's why I asked.
Now, if there were more technical arguments it wouldn't matter -- they could be evaluated regardless of who tells them --, but your comment was mostly summed to: "they are inferior quality" and "they only succeeded because they use vim's name directly", which doesn't leave much to evaluate.
note, I don't do this - I use vanilla vsc for my text editor. I've just seen many who do.
then install the language files you want. This will install node completion:
typings install dt~node --global
Much easier than before!
