Git pull starts vim

What to do if git pull starts vim?

You're in the text editor, vim! It's a modal text editor, so you would need to:

  • Press i to enter insert mode.
  • Now you can type your message, as if you were in a normal (non-modal) text editor.
  • Press esc to go back to command mode.
  • Then type :w followed by enter to save.
  • Finally :q followed by enter to quit.
