Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to:

  • Simplify maintenance and encourage contributions
  • Split the work between multiple developers
  • Enable the implementation of new/modern user interfaces without any modifications to the core source
  • Improve extensibility with a new plugin architecture

For lots more details, see the wiki!

What's been done so far

See the progress page for a comprehensive list.

What's being worked on now

  • Port all IO to libuv
  • Convert legacy tests to Lua tests
  • VimL => Lua translator

How do I get it?

There is a formula for OSX/homebrew, a PKGBUILD for Arch Linux, RPM, deb, and more. See the wiki!


...would be awesome! See the wiki for more details.

Vim is Charityware.  You can use and copy it as much as you like, but you are
encouraged to make a donation for needy children in Uganda.  Please see the
kcc section of the vim docs or visit the ICCF web site, available at these URLs:

You can also sponsor the development of Vim.  Vim sponsors can vote for
features.  The money goes to Uganda anyway.
