Vim - the ubiquitous text editor

Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to make creating and changing any kind of text very efficient. It is included as "vi" with most UNIX systems and with Apple OS X.

Vim is rock stable and is continuously being developed to become even better. Among its features are:
  • persistent, multi-level undo tree
  • extensive plugin system
  • support for hundreds of programming languages and file formats
  • powerful search and replace
  • integrates with many tools

Vim voted #1 text editor on diffur

[2017-03-18] It's no surprise to Vim users, but always nice to see how Vim compares to other editors. You can view the list on diffur.com. (Bram Moolenaar)

Secure connection available

[2017-02-13] Notice the "go to HTTPS page" link in the header? Use it to go to the securely connected version of the same Vim pages. This runs on the sourceforge servers, thus the URL cannot end in vim.org. This is especially recommended if you upload or download scripts. (Bram Moolenaar)

Vim 25 birthday presentation

[2016-12-14] On November 2nd I did a presentation about Vim at Google Zurich. This is exactly 25 years since the first public version of Vim was built. The presentation gives an overview of Vim history and highlights the important choices that were made. With background information on my personal life and what was the state of computing, the context in which Vim was developed. You can find it on Youtube. (Bram Moolenaar)
