Ankush, it will not be the vi (editor) cheat sheet! It will be a cheat sheet for vi keyboard bindings when working with bash!
As I said in the article, bash uses readline library to get input from you. When you type something (for example a command 'ls -las') it's the readline library that gets this text for you.
The library has two editing modes - emacs mode and vi mode. Each of these modes has its own keyboard shortcuts for doing stuff like moving a word back, clearing the whole line, etc.
This article provided a cheat sheet for emacs mode.
The next one is going to be a cheat sheet for vi mode.
I personally use both modes and switch between them as needed.
Would you be able to outline when and why you use one mode versus the other? I know both have their strengths/weaknesses as programs so I am assuming there are some key bindings that are more efficient/intuitive in one mode versus the other (?).

* use <pre lang="lang">...</pre> to insert a syntax highlighted code snippet.
For example, <pre lang="python">...</pre> will insert Python highlighted code.
* use <code>...</code> to highlight a variable or a single shell command.
* use <a href="url" nospam>title</a> to insert links.
<a href="url" nospam>title</a>
