My Microsoft Windows Terminal settings with vi keybindings and zen burn

I've started playing with the Microsoft Windows Terminal.

My settings.json now contains some simple VI keybindings to easy up creating of tabs and panes. Furthermore, I am a big fan of the zenburn color scheme. You can find your settings.json in the path %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState.

// This file was initially generated by Windows Terminal 1.0.1401.0
