vim and terminal setup

1/30/2016 permalink

After wrestling with multiple vim plugins over support for ES6 and JSX, I’ve finally straightened out my preferred vim setup for working with ES6, JSX, GLSL, Go, and Markdown. The following setup provides the NerdTree drawer, allows the NerdTree drawer to be open across tabs, and provides Airline status bar and tab bar. It has highlighting for JSX, ES6, Go, and GLSL and on write it automatically formats .go, .js, .html, and .css files (although it leaves JSX inside .js files alone, tags can be formatted with =). For .md and .txt files it provides 80-column soft word-wrapping and highlighting for incorrect spelling. All indents are spaces with a tab width of 4 except in the case of Go, which is run through gofmt.


Note: As of this date, the current master of vim-jsbeautify uses an old version of beautify and that a newer one needs to be cloned for ES6 to work right.

As for my terminal, I prefer iTerm2. I set ⌘← and ⌘→ to previous and next pane. The font I prefer is 12pt Litereation Mono Powerline. Finally, I use Spectacle which binds ⌘⌥← and ⌘⌥→ to manipulate the iTerm2 window.

moving to hugo

old website

For years my site used Stacey, a no-frills no-database content management system. It served me quite well, but it’s time to move on. This site is now statically generated with Hugo, laid out with Skeleton, and served by NGINX.

Working with Hugo has been mostly been good, except for a few minor problems when working with shortcodes to create grids (issue 1148, though that seems to be mostly fixed with the current master). It’s been wonderful to be able to write everything in markdown and to easily extend it with my own shortcodes. It’s also nice now that everything is a static file and I no longer have PHP, Python, or node.js serving up content.
