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

New Vim.org Homepage Hosting

[2023-09-26] The Vim project has been moved to a new hosting provider.
The hosting should be much more stable now and database problems should now also been solved.
Thanks to Wavestack for hosting us. (Christian Brabandt)

Moving the Vim Homepage

[2023-09-24] The Vim project will move to a new homepage on tuesday, september 26th, 2023 around 08:00 pm CEST.
During that time there may be some issues connecting to the current homepage (or trying to login) but hopefully they will be resolved very soon.
The new vim.org domain name should then resolve to the new IP
This homepage here will stay in read-only mode and no longer maintained.

RIP Bram Moolenaar

[2023-08-08] The Vim project is deeply shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Bram. We certainly will miss him, his guidance and his humour.

The Vim project wouldn't exist without his ongoing passion to lead and develop Vim and the community for more than 30 years.

Our deepest condolences to all his family and may they have enough strengths to come through these saddened times. We lost a great guy way too early, who should have had the chance to enjoy and live for at least several more years!

In addition he was well-known for collecting donations for the ICCF foundation and helping many children in Uganda. And despite the saddened news, during the last 7 days an incredible amount of EURO 60,000 was donated. That is so awesome. Thank you all contributors!

An incredible amount of people have been giving respect and saying goodby at here and you'll find obituary articles and links here.

It is in Brams interest to continue the Vim project even if development now will slow down, but hopefully the community is being able to step up and continue the work in the next years. (Christian Brabandt)
