TODO under construction
I spent a lot of this last weekend aspirationally re-upping my vim game. That’s what there is to do for fun nowadays, I guess. Maybe I’ll actually stick to it this time.
Characteristically, I spent too long fiddling with things that don’t matter.
blink.sh is great to attach to a remote server (with pretty colors and cool remappings) but what about when we’re offline?
We can use
ish to run a ssh server with an Alpine linux environment and then connect to it with blink.
from the ish side:
apk add python3 git zsh shadow ncurses perl curl openssh openrc vim nvim adduser user ssh-keygen -A # this way we can run it in the background, although this is a bit too laggy # running ish and blink.sh side by side gets the most responsive results # //https://github.com/ish-app/ish/issues/249#issuecomment-544338096 cat /dev/location > /dev/null & /usr/sbin/sshd -d -p 8000
Get blink.sh things set up to be pretty
Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Hardware Keyboard -> Modifier Keys
from the blink side:
ssh -p 8000 user@localhost
(answer yes then no, when you reinstall ish it will have a new key, blink will freak out, and it’s hard to fix)
too slow/wonky for my full zsh setup, but with some plugins disabled vim is manageable
