Vim fans, or folks who might be thinking about trying Vim, should take a look at Jared Carroll’s Vim Text Objects: The Definitive Guide.

Not only that, he provides a few commands that many users probably haven’t seen or used yet.

Even though I’ve been using Vim for the better part of 12 years, Carroll taught me a few things here. Go check it out!
