Vim - Join multiple lines

Vim Join multiple line

Sometime, I have to do a task like that: Rewrite this code into a single line:

article_ids = [

For combining multiple lines into a single line efficiently in Vim, especially with a list as long as 1000 items, you might find the usual method of pressing Shift + j repeatedly quite tedious.

TIL that there is a more efficient way to join a large number of lines is using the command :1,100j. Tada, just 1s =))

If you want to join all lines in the file, just use: :%j. This command joins all lines in the file into a single line instantly, making the process much faster.
