sending vim to background then bringing it back

Problem
You are working in vim and you want to switch quickly to the terminal to do something. Then you want to get back to vim and continue editing where you left off.

Solution
Simply do the same you do with other programs:

  • CTRL+Z: suspends vim and you find yourself in the terminal
  • do your terminal business
  • fg: brings you back to vim
