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 8.2.1216 is the current version 

old but still useful videos

[2020-07-10] Not much news has appeared here for a while, so let's dig up some old stuff! The talk about Vim's 25th birthday can be found here. It gives a nice overview of how Vim became what it is now. A much older talk, but about stuff that never gets old is 7 Habits For Effective Text Editing. Anybody who spends more than an hour a day editing text should watch it. I recently discovered a University lecture about Vim here. It's amazing how many Vim tutorials can be found on Youtube. (Bram Moolenaar)

Vim 8.2 is released

[2019-12-13] More than a year after 8.1 and 2424 patches: Here is 8.2! You can read the announcement on this page. Main new feature is support for Popup windows. To show it off a silly game was created. Happy Vimming! (Bram Moolenaar)

[2020-07-12]  ShowTrailingWhitespace : Detect unwanted whitespace at the end of lines.
(1.10) - The default g:ShowTrailingWhitespace_FilterFunc now also skips highlighting in |terminal-window|s.

Offer public functions to implement custom commands or mappings for blacklist management... - Ingo Karkat
