A Vim Story
A ncurses based game for learning Vim
There are a lot of problems faced by beginners to Vim (like getting used to not using arrow keys for example). Although there are a lot of resources for learning Vim, they can get tedious and time consuming.
The project aims to make a game played by using the shortcuts and key mappings in Vim to ease into the famous learning curve of Vim. The idea is to make a retro console game (like bomber-man and the likes) which is controlled solely by Vim key mappings and shortcuts.
Inspired by Vim Adventures and open sourced.
Assuming you have libncurses, CMake and Make installed.
mkdir build && cd build cmake .. make make install # to install (might want to use 'sudo') a-vim-story # to run
If you want to install in another directory
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .. # to install in /usr
Or if you want to test it in
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=. .. make && make install ./bin/a-vim-story
