5 useful Vim plugins for developers

I have used Vim as a text editor for over 20 years, but about two years ago I decided to make it my primary text editor. I use Vim to write code, configuration files, blog articles, and pretty much everything I can do in plaintext. Vim has many great features and, once you get used to it, you become very productive.

I tend to use Vim’s robust native capabilities for most of what I do, but there are a number of plugins developed by the open source community that extend Vim’s capabilities, improve your workflow, and make you even more productive.

Following are five plugins that are useful when using Vim to write code in any programming language.

1. Auto Pairs
2. NERD Commenter
3. Vim Surround
4. Vim Gitgutter
5. Vim Fugitive
