I want to learn the controls to VIM.

What it does

(NOT FUNCTIONAL YET) Opens a text editor that displays 2 windows: an un-editable window w/ text, and an editable window with flawed text.

How I built it

Used Java Swing.

Challenges I ran into

It's been years since I've programmed in Java, let alone Swing.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Getting a basic text editor up and running. (NO SAVE OR OPEN YET)

What I learned

Swing is outdated. Use JavaFX next time. MVC is a godsend when done correctly. Next time, figure out how to do MVC (in given language) before start of event.

What's next for VimTutorial

Finish project. Rebuild in JavaFX.

Built With
