Surround

[ Listen to article ]

Every now and then I come across a new vim plugin that makes life way easier. Yesterday I came across one that I’ve already made use of twice. Which kind of indicates it solves a problem pretty well.

The idea is that sometimes you have a thing surrounded by delimiters - double quotes, html tags, whatever. And you want to change or remove them. The surround plugin lets you do that with a few simple steps. I still have to refer to the README for the plugin, but it’s done in a ver vi-like way.
