Vim Spellcheck

August 2017

I love Vim, and do most of my writing in it. However, it's not set up for copy so much as it is code. Little luxuries like spell checking aren't enabled by default.

Thankfully, turning it on and off it is as easy as:

" Enable spellcheck
set spell
" Disable spellcheck
set nospell

I generally find it less distracting to not have spell check on most of the time, hence why I don't just set this in my .vimrc file.

Ever wish you got more email?

Neither do I. You're busy, and so is your inbox. I'll only be in touch when I publish something new. And of course it goes without saying your email will be kept completely private.
