I wanted to go old-style, so I did
inoremap <tab> <esc>
 
what's that do?
 
I mapped the tab to esc

A: Why does vim use hjkl for cursor keys?

DJMcMayhemNobe4's answer is great, and explains why we use hjkl very well. However, it's really interesting to see the full keyboard, and a lot of strange things about vim make more sense when you can see the full keyboard it was designed on. For example, why does vi rely so heavily on the esc key, when it...

^ Look at the image in that answer

ah
 
tbh it's much better now
I also mapped caps-lock to ctrl in keyboard preferences

2 hours later…

Woah, V's birthday is in 15 days
 
Then we need to come up with a challenge quick
 
Draw an ASCII art V?
whoops, wrong one
 
Let's continue in the vim/v chatroom
 
6 messages moved from Brain-Flak
 
Maybe something else ascii-art
> Make a V made of copies of the input

Example?
 
If the input was vim, then something like: tio.run/nexus/v#@///…
 
Ooh, that's pretty cool
 
(the difference is in how the ends of the V are displayed)
 
How about this: tio.run/nexus/…
 
What exactly should the dimensions be?

I'm not sure. It should depend on the size of the input though
 
I have an idea. So the bottom bit should be the length of the input, I'll show you what I mean
Actually never, I confused myself
 
I've got it
Height should be len(input()*2)
The only downside is that single letters look meh
 
I think 1 + 3*(new Scanner(System.in).nextInt()) looks better
I take that back, I think
 
I have another idea
Just a sec
Same as before, but without the Duplicate character
