Vim layout

Vim layout

Hi all,

Any Vimmers on here? What layout did you go for on your Atreus that makes
using Vim a bit more pleasant?

I'm looking for any tips before I start rolling my own, as the default
layout I've been using for the past month is quite a hassle, even after
doing some remapping to get the absent characters, like ;; to <ESC>:

Thanks in advance
Bojan

I use the default layout. The hardest thing for me to get used to was
the position of the Tab key. I also used to use 10j and 10k a lot to
jump around a file, but I've had to un-train myself on that (using
Ctrl+d, Ctrl+u as Bram intended). A long time ago I had leader mapped to
"," instead of "\". I stopped doing that at some point because "\" isn't
that bad to hit on most keyboards, and I wanted to be closer to a stock
Vim. I could see Atreus users wanting to remap leader to a single key,
but I don't find Fn+/ to be that inconvenient.

I've run into a different interesting issue with Atreus & Vim ever since
I updated the firmware last week. I enabled "Momentary Third Layer mode"
and now certain combinations of Fn and Shift will leave me either in
caps lock or Fn lock. So when I start typing after this happens Vim
starts running commands instead of typing. Not great, but that's why we
have undo.
