Vim + tmux + NERDTree + a bunch of other plugins to handle code completion, gutters, etc.

Add a 34-inch ultrawide monitor (Dell has been best with color accuracy for me) to the mix and a nice keyboard, makes all the difference in the world!




Would you mind sharing what plugins your using? I've tried combining and setting up yourcompleteme, ale and one or two others I can't recall, but it never work as flawlessly as say vs code or pycharm in terms of completion, suggestions and quick doc viewing. Are you using vim or neovim?


I use neovim with deoplete as the completion engine and all the plugins to deoplete required for my work (python, JavaScript, Go). There’s a number of other useful plugins, but that alone get me pretty close to IDE level completion.


Away from computer right now, but off the top of my head:

Youcompleteme (works great for me, but I think I had to tinker with it) NERDTree NERDcommenter Gitgutter pdb (experimenting with it)

Probably forgetting something.


What kind of work do you do with that setup if you don't mind me asking?


This is mostly for personal tinkering - typically Django and some APIs, or data stuff.

I’m a product guy by trade. Currently, focusing on data-related products and functionality, but have done SaaS, telco, etc.

For work I recently had to write some QA tools to extract data from BigQuery and verify that the payload is correct. Vim and google’s bq cli made it a lot easier than I expected.
