But there will always be one genius in a hundred who will do things that 99% of people cannot do, such as this:http://www.lucianofiandesio.c …
Can what he has done perfectly replace Intellij IDEA or eclipse? The answer is: No-but it depends on who, for a few people, they don’t rely on what IDE has, but vim doesn’t have and is difficult to implement (or the cost of implementation is a bit unworthy), so they can still write Java in vim and write faster than many people. On the other hand, people who use IDE to become proficient will not be slower than vim, let alone now IDE can realize most of vim editing modes-but vim has some advantages that IDE can never reach, light, fast, server almost standard, remote connection available immediately … You can only do one thing well if you are proficient in IDE, and you know what you can do if you are proficient in vim!
Then the question arises: Are you this kind of person? The above answer Emacs is basically applicable, and Emacs can do even more extreme things in the matter of transforming infinite access to IDE.
