As a long time developer using vim, I have no plans to try another editor.
After working with credo for a while and needing to sort aliases alphabetically, I found that this feature is built into vim.
Let’s imagine you have these aliases:
alias Lancr.Client.Google.Contacts alias SomeOtherModule alias Goth.Token alias GoogleApi.People.V1.Connection
Rather than needing to focus in on alphabetizing the aliases manually to satisfy Credo, select the modules with Shift + V.
Then you can enter
:sort to envoke the sort function.
alias GoogleApi.People.V1.Connection alias Goth.Token alias Lancr.Client.Google.Contacts alias SomeOtherModule
This is a real time-saver when you have many files to process.
I plan on doing a follow-up for a complete Vim setup for developing Elixir.
