not supported:


Compile vim-remote library.

    $ make -f Makefile.x11

  Windows (VC++):
    > nmake -f Makefile.msvc

  Windows (MinGW):
    > make -f Makefile.mingw

Start the sample python server.

  $ python main.py --servername py --server

You can evaluate Python expression with remote_expr().
Start Vim and execute the following command.

  :echo remote_expr('py', 'print("This is Python expression")')

"None" is result of Python expression.
And the message will be displayed on the console.

Also, it is possible to call client function from server.

  :function! F()
  :  echo "This is Vim expression"
  :  return "And this is result from Vim"
  :let pyexpr = printf('remote_expr("%s", "F()")', v:servername)
  :let result = remote_expr('py', pyexpr)
  This is Vim expression
  :echo result
  And this is result from Vim
