Because I have finally been able to replace my work laptop.
Because I’m allowed to install software on a server, but not on the laptop in front of me.
Because corporate security policies are insane.
Because I need a decent text editor.
Because PortableApps is a lifesaver.
I have talked about getting Vim to work in Powershell in the past, but this time around I need to get the portable version of Vim working in Powershell.
This is done by editing your
$profile so that the following line is included:
set-alias vim "Path\To\PortableApps\gVimPortable\App\vim\vim80\vim.exe"
Everything else appears to be working as expected, so I can actually get some work done now.
