Vim Essential Plugin: EasyMotion

This post is part of a series called Vim Essential Plugins.
Vim Essential Plugin: Surround

In this first episode of Vim Essential Plugins, we'll be reviewing the helpful EasyMotion plugin, which allows us to be much quicker when traversing our pages.


Once installed (see video for help), the EasyMotion plugin can be triggered by using the leader character plus w. By default, this will be \w. Once this sequence is pressed, every word in your document will be replaced with a trigger-letter.


At that point, simply type the red identifier of the location you want to move your cursor, and - bam -- you're done! Be sure to also review some of the other triggers, like \ge and \k. Download it. Use it!
