Spellcheck in Vi/m

I’ve been using vi for 20+ years and somehow I didn’t know that it has spell check built in 🤷‍♂

Enable it by simply :set spell

Now misspelled words are shown in red background 1 (depending on the terminal’s capability this might vary - I assume)

Off course, this is nowhere near full fledged LSP like ltex which I use with emacs and helix. ltext does more than spell check.

Yet having built-in spell checker is always nice.

  1. Works with vim as well. ↩︎
