Andrew talks about how he likes using Znap! to help him with his dot files and reduce his shell’s startup time.[00:06:43] Andrew talks more about minimalizing his setup by getting rid of aliases he’s not using every couple months, as well as plugins. It’s hard to stop hoarding those plugins! [00:07:13] Collin really only uses Vim but has a lot of theme plugins, and the plugins he does have tend to be from Tim Pope.  [00:08:26] Both Collin and Andrew dive deeper into aliases.

Andrew tried it in the past, and he thinks it’s time to board the Vim train again. Like he says, and this applies to anything new you bring into your workflow, “You just need to dive in, take your time, and you’re gonna be moving slow at first.”[00:28:11] The whole Vim talk evolves into remapping your keyboard to prevent your fingers from contorting.  [00:34:49] After Andrew talks about some of his go to VSCode plugins, Collin wants to know more about his VSCode setup and layout. Andrew talks more about some of the plugins he likes, like Customize UI, and how he likes to keep his VSCode looking clean.[00:36:31] Let’s talk monitor setups: Multiple, single, full screen.
