(Cheat Sheet) VI Editor / Linux Terminal


This post features a VI Help Sheet, a cheat sheet for the VI Editor, for all web-developers out there who are working on Linux.

The cheat sheet contains terminal commands for modes and controls, inserting text, cursor navigation, deleting text, searching and replacing. Download it. Print it. Stick it on the wall and get commanding.

We created the VI Editor cheat sheet because of the amount of time members of our team spend working in the Linux Terminal. Working on our web app is a full time occupation and for the developers, using the command line 24/7 can be exhausting. Forgetting a command here or there can really break up their workflow. So we put together the VI cheat sheet that can be used for quick reference as and when you need!


  1. Modes & Control
  2. Cursor Navigation
