How could I have lived for so long without knowing that I could set up my command line with vi key bindings? Well, for anyone else who uses vi and bash, here’s the secret…

Create ~/.inputrc

set meta-flag on
set input-meta on
set output-meta on
set convert-meta off

add this to your .bashrc

set -o vi

Thanks Adam!
