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

  News  Vim 9.0.0619 is the current version 

new :defer command

[2022-09-10] Cleaning up after creating a file or directory can easily be forgotten. To make it easier the :defer command has been added. It works like it does in the Go language. Also, you can add a flag to writefile() and mkdir() to have them defer a delete() call. This is especially useful in tests, where temp files need to be cleaned up. Read about it in the help file. (Bram Moolenaar)

Virtual text has been implemented

[2022-09-10] The past weeks a new feature has been added, that allows for displaying text in between the buffer text. Since this text does not exist in the file this is often called "virtual text". The virtual text can appear inside the line, after the line and below the line. You can read about it in the help. (Bram Moolenaar)

Vim 9.0 is released!

[2022-06-28] Finally, after years of hard work, there is a new major release of Vim. Besides many additions and fixes, the main new item is the support for Vim9 script. You can go straight to the Download page and try it out. Or read the announcement. (Bram Moolenaar)
