"Neovim is an effort to aggressively re-factor the Vim source code and improve on:

  • It will provide first class support for embedding.
  • It lets you extend the editor in any programming language.
  • It supports more powerful GUIs.
  • Vim plugins will work with it.

Hosted on Bounty Source it has reached $25,500 of it's goal of $10,000, although there are still 3 days to reach further stretch goals! You can view the projects current progress and even pitch in over at GitHub. As someone who has started using Vim full-time over the last 6 months I feel that this is a very good project for the longevity of Vim."

    I just redirect my output to a text file, with no need for those "editors" you keep speaking about.

    Damn straight, and my first project was a parser that reads the history file and removes erroneous commands. Then it intelligently infers which commands were simply tests to see if I had the right command. The end result is a shell script that does what I want. Half joking of course. I suppose you could adopt that as your personal process if such an intelligent parser existed. It would be a bit like using a REPL for development which I understand some hardcore Lisp guys do. I can imagine developing in a REPL... but I don't see myself ever working that way.
