This page is indeed a great source of inspirations for useful vim tips; please do visit this page often.
Here is my own curated vim tips:
Inserting Command Output Into Currently Editting File
" inserts text from a specified file into the current buffer :r textfile " read in sorted order of file names :r ! ls -1 /home/user/directory | sort -r
Execute External Commands Without Quiting Vim
" execute an NON-INTERACITVE command by Bang (!) " below: count the number of words for current editing file (%) :! wc % " execute INTERACTIVE commands by dropping to interactive " shell; you can always go back to vim by 'CTRL-D' or 'exit' :sh
" Line complete SUPER USEFUL <C-X><C-L>
Search Words Completion
" Pull <cword> onto search/command line /<C-R><C-W> " Pull <CWORD> onto search/command line /<C-R><C-A>
Window Size Adjustment
" Adjust height of splitted windows <C-W><+|-> " Adjust width of splitted windows <C-W><lessthan(<)|greaterthan(>)>
