vim enthusiasts, check out my vim twitter bot!

@TipsVim is a twitter bot I developed to spread vim knowledge on twitter.

It tweets a helpful tip or piece of knowledge about text editing in vim, once daily. Tweets are selected from a repository of 100+ tidbits of knowledge I composed myself!

The bot is deployed on AWS lambda and is triggered by a cloudwatch event.

If you’re extra keen on taking your vim editing to the next level check out this book on vi and vim. It’s what I used to generate most of @TipsVim’s tweets and I occasionally revisit this text when I want to brush up on my skills.

For an authoritative source of knowledge check out vimhelp.
