Apple

In the summer of 2017, I wanted to know what it would be like to use an iPad Pro as my main computer. I found out that it can actually work, thanks to an iOS app called Blink, an SSH replacement called Mosh, iOS 11 and running stuff on a server.

You could argue the title is a tad bit misleading - there's a lot of thin client DNA in his setup - but it's an interesting look at how to achieve this, nonetheless.

You're rather underestimating the power of (neo)vim.

Everything you can do in an IDE, I get in vim.

Omnicompletion ("intellisense") with deep language and context integration, asynchronous linting/compilation, task management, git integration, definition jumping and refactoring, advanced templating and snippet construction...

First thing I do any time I'm forced to use an IDE (Android Studio etc.) is install vim emulation and get frustrated at how little they can do.
