Three Minutes Daily Vim Tip: Disable a Key

The letter 'J' in vim is mapped to a shortcut to join two lines. Unfortunately, the letter 'j' is used a lot to navigate, and I often mistakenly press shift along with 'j'. This is quite annoying, so I decided to simply disable this shortcut.

To do this, open up ~/.vimrc file and add the following line:
nnoremap J <nop>

That's it!
