|Having trouble at 4:10 (:e app/views/welcome/index.html.erb)||julian||7/15/12 7:35 PM|
I was doing fine with the install up until about the 4:10 mark of the video. I cannot replicate what is happening...(where he enters :e app/views/welcome/index.html.erb at the bottom of the terminal).
Any advice? I realize it is probably something very simple but this is all very new to me. For what it's worth I searched this group before posting and couldn't find an answer :-)

Can be you more precise on what can't you replicate? Perhaps you mean the colors? I believe that is vim configuration.
Note that "vim" is just one editor, the idea are the contents, and what you edit in it, not precisely the editor.
Perfection in design is achieved not when there is nothing more to add,
but rather when there is nothing more to take away.

You notice in the screenshot of the video at the bottom he is typing :e app/...
I cannot get to the bottom of the terminal like that to enter ":e app/views/welcome/index.html.erb
also, my terminal isn't displaying app/controllers/welcome_controller.rb towards the bottom like in the video.
Perhaps this is supposed to look different (OSX 10.7.4) but up until this step everything looked very similar.

My guess is that you may be in the wrong mode when trying to enter the ":e" command. Vim is modal so you need to be in "Normal" mode to but if you still need clarification on what that means, you may want to use a different editor.

I strongly recommend you open the editor you're used to, locate the
file in question and perform the changes shown in the video.
Every developer customize their editor of preference to their taste,
most likely you don't have such customizations.
