Test your Vim movement speed chops with this challenge.

It will give you a score based on:

  • how quickly you complete the challenge
  • how few keystrokes you use

The lower the score you get, the better. Each second you take adds 1 point, while each keystroke you use adds 0.5 points. This is for fun and practice, don't take the score part too seriously.

This challenge is about movement only.
Any attempts to edit the text will be futile.

Start by clicking that pretty orange button below.
