Dev tip: Learn VIM

So happy that I know how to use VIM. Why? Because sometimes I need to edit files on the remote host.
Maybe your IDE can’t successfully connect to the remote host and you end up with SSH and CLI commands.
My current scenario is implementing a payment gateway and using localhost as host is ignored 😦 I ended up coding on the shared hosting via SSH, but without slowdown thanks to VIM skills.



Open new Chrome window from command line via SSH

I switch between computers and sometimes when I’m switching I need to push an URL/prepare a window so found a solution with the following command:

mike@remotehost $ export DISPLAY=:0; nohup chromium --new-window
