TIL: Vim Paste Mode and Nord Theme

Tue Mar 2, 2021

Today I learned about two useful, but not life changing things:

Paste Mode

Vim has a paste mode which disables automatic indention when pasting text into normal mode.

:set paste

:set nopaste

This is life changing because I’ve been caught out by automatic indentation runing attempts to copy & paste code into terminal windows for years. Normally my recourse has been to drop into another editor or hand fix the issues.

The Nord Theme

The Nord theme is very pleasing to my eyes. It looks good in Visual Studio Code & Alacritty, which is my current terminal emulator of choice. It also pairs well with my current programming font, FiraCode.
