Really, the basic stuff is enough to be very productive in vim.  In fact
just knowing how to save and quit is half the battle!  A little cheat
sheet for vim by your keyboard would be plenty I think.  If all you knew
was how to change modes, insert, append, change word, yank, delete, and
paste, that is 99% of what you'd use every day.  You can use normal
arrow keys, home, end, and page up and page down for cursor movement in
vim, so even if you can't remember ^,$, gg, or GG, you'll do fine.
Eventually you can begin to add in other things, like modifiers to c

There probably are a lot of nice plugins for ViM, but I use none of
them. I just don't find them that useful.  I don't seem to need any IDE
help with Python.
