|Limp's goal is to provide a compelling alternative to Slime for Vim. It will let you send s-expressions to a running Lisp.
It will do this for you:
* booting/attaching/detaching a Lisp (SBCL) from Vim or a command-line script, optionally specifying a core;
* send code to the attached Lisp (and limited introspection, see Help Describe);
* automatically close brackets;
* ease s-exp navigation and (some) transposing;
* highlight current form under the cursor;
* lookup documentation from the HyperSpec;
* complete (some) names.
Quickstart (better version with screenshots in the documentation):
In a file with "filetype=lisp" set, hit <F12> to invoke Limp and start a Lisp or connect to an existing.
Write a piece of code, e.g.:
(defun hello-world (who)
(format t "Hello, ~A!~%" who))
Place the cursor at any location inside the code and type <Leader>et (Evaluate Top) to send your code to the running Lisp.
Hit <F12> again to see the results! Then, by placing the cursor at hello-world and typing <Leader>hd (Help Describe) followed by <F12>, you'll see information about the symbol!
(Full list of key bindings at http://mikael.jansson.be/hacking/limp/docs/#keyboard-reference )
To test it, type
:Eval (hello-world '|Limp User|)
followed by <Enter> and <F12>.
More info in the documentation!
Uses code from ViLisp (vimscript #221), AutoClose (vimscript #1849), HiMtchBrkt (vimscript #1435)

ip used for rating:
||Mostly bugfix release, with some extra candy.
Fixed bugs: #15 (mappings set twice when navigating Lisp buffers); #16 (more robust startup procedure), #19 (eval working on unsaved buffers).
New features: #20 (proper installer), #21 (s-exp navigation and (experimental) transposing).
||* CompileFile/CompileAndLoadFile now saves the file before telling Lisp to load it (#4).
* New command, :Eval, same functionality as \ex.
* Easier keyboard configuration (keys.vim)
* It is now a Lisp filetype plugin, so Limp will start automatically for Lisp files. (set filetype=lisp)
* Configurable location of SBCL in lisp.sh
* Updated documentation about Cmd for Fn-keys in OS X

+ **ADDED**: TODO file in the distro.
+ *FIXED*: Last occurance of "Lim" found in the HyperSpec helper. Now
documentation should work properly.
+ TWEAK: Only change colorscheme and nocompatible when not previously set.

+ *FIXED*: Connect-or-boot, without a name given to boot.
