How I use vim splits

[vimeo w=500&h=394]

A five-minute exploration of how I use splits in vim to navigate between production or test code and how I move up and down through layers of abstractions. Spoiler: I use vertical splits to put test and production code side-by-side; horizontal splits come into play when I’m navigating through the layers of a web app or something with a client/server aspect to it. I haven’t customized vim to make this work; I just use the normal window keybindings and a bunch of commands from vim-rails.

I seriously heart this setup. It’s worth taking thirty minutes to figure out how you can approximate it with whatever editor setup you enjoy most. Hint: splits are really fantastic.
