For those that regularly use vim and that also regularly use LaTeX, do you recommend using vim for LaTeX? If not, what do you recommend?

Check out LaTeX-Suite it makes writing LaTeX very easy within vim. I've tried other alternatives but always come back to vim.

Obligatory answer: emacs. With auctex.

Not that there is anything wrong with vi if your tastes run that way.

  • Thanks. Tried it, but don't have time to learn emacs right now. I was particularly targeting the intersection of vim users and LaTeX users. Feb 25 '10 at 18:17

I've used vim for both writing articles and presentations (through beamer-latex) and I am personally very satisfied.

Couple the powerful editing capabilities of vim with the comfort of the many macros, templates, compiling support and various features of the vim-latex plugin and, if you are confortable with vim, you will hardly find any better environment for latex editing.
