The VimGym is your very own, private Vim workout space where you can work on your Vim Game, hone your skills and keep your edge. It is based on the principles of Deliberate Practice, which:
is explicitly intended to improve performance
concentrates on skills just beyond your level of competence
provides feedback on results
uses repetition to establish good habits
VimGym maintains a suite of tasks that it challenges you with and records your achievements on. It compares your current score with your prior scores and your Personal Best for each task. VimGym will re-test you more frequently on tasks that you achieve lower scores on, thereby forcing you to focus more on your weaker areas.
You can add your own challenges to VimGym. Share them with your friends.
VimGym is not meant for contest; as each individual’s playing field can differ wildly, comparing times is mostly meaningless.
Training in the VimGym
:VimGym do [<task-name>]
:VimGym add start|end <task-name>
:VimGym delete <task-name>
:VimGym stats [<task-name>]
:VimGym add is for managing your suite of tasks — the idea being,
when in the middle of editing you become aware of something you should
practice later, you can yank the necessary lines and paste them into a
new buffer and
:VimGym add start <taskname> the from half of the
pair and then alter it to the desired form and run
:VimGym add end
From within a VimGym pane, use:
:VGS— Call this when you are ready to start the editing task
:VGE— Call this when you are finished the task
:VGD— Toggle between normal view and diff view
As Yet Unimplemented
:VimGym— will spawn a new tab and set you off on a challenge. This may be a new challenge or a repeat, as determined by VimGym.
