Navigate the zsh command line using vim key bindings

If you use zsh, you can easily edit the command line using vim key bindings.

Just add this to your ~/.zshrc, like so:

bindkey -v

Be sure to "source" the shell initialization afterwards with:

source ~/.zshrc

Here's another shortcut for accomplishing the same sourcing:

. ~/.zshrc

Now you can navigate the command line using vim key bindings. This has been a huge time-saver for me, so give it a try.
