Project VimR is an attempt to refine the Vim experience. The goal is to build an editor that uses Vim inside with many of the convenience GUI features similar to those present in modern editors for Mac. Let’s see how far we get! :) Some features so far:

Open Quickly à la Xcode (or Go to File in TextMate) File browser with many keyboard actions

    nice to see the resurgence of interest in vim as one part of a larger system, unix-philosophy style. i remember back in the day the integration of vim as a “kdepart” into kate looked like it was going to be the perfect lightweight middleground between an ide and an editor (it had three panes, for project tree, console and editor), but sadly using vim as a kdepart never quite worked out.

      Yeah, seeing vim (or any editor) as simply a replaceable part in a larger system would be really neat. Being able to switch between true vim, emacs, or other (lesser) text editors would be really cool.

      Can I compile this in linux?

        I’m going to guess the answer is no as it’s an Xcode project for OSX. :)

          Ah, ok, I guess I will just keep using regular vim. Which isn’t so bad after all.
