I love Powershell, but a feature that seems ‘missing’ or not so well developed seems to be inline editing. Like, you know in Linux, you use nano or emacs or vim. Luckily, there is vim for Windows!

All you need to do is download the executable and move it in you ‘Windows/System32’ folder and you can use it like you are used ti from Linux.

So let’s say you want to to edit your Powershellprofile?

vim $profile

let’s you edit it in the Powershell console.

Really been missing an inline editor!

Sure you can just do this:

explorer $profile

However editing files inline with the power of vim, it’s fantastic!
