Needless to say vi is of the devil. However, in some cases we need it. This is a simple command reference.

Opening a file with vi
  • vi
Editing a file after you have opened it
  • Press the Insert key "Ins"
  • Move to where you want to edit and start typing/make your edits
Saving your changes and exiting the file
  • Press the escape key "esc"
  • Press Shift and : together to open a vi command prompt
  • Type in wq <-- stands for write and quit
Quitting out of a file without saving
  • Press the escape key "esc"
  • Press Shift and : together to open a vi command prompt
  • Type in q!   <-- stands for quit, I mean it because vi is dumb and must be ordered around
