As I try to figure out how to ease back into Vim, Tmux, and other “esoteric” tools, I’m reminded again that you should never trust people’s suggestions on the Internet (especially their code). I suspect that the hundreds of blog posts on “how to configure x”, “how to setup y”, or “why everyone should be using z” contribute to the general attitude of mistrust that I have towards people trying to be helpful online. For some reason, there’s a lot of proselytism around different tools and workflows. If you’re not careful, you’ll likely to end up filling your machine with garbage setups, scripts and configuration files that’ll pollute your working environment.
