For users who are more comfortable with the GUI than the CLI, Cream for Vim brings a lot of Mac/Windowsy features to Vim in the hopes of making it less intimidating.

  • There is a graphical -- X Windows? -- version of Vim which often is installed with it: GVim. It includes a toolbar and is also highly configurable, or it can be set to use Vim's configuration. -- David Engel 6 Apr 2005

Whoa! You can type 'gf' in command mode to open a filename under the cursor. It's like a lazy wiki! --sckot 22:55, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)

When adding the section on fixing end-of-line characters, I included two solutions, including one that I don't recommend anyone uses. I included this solution because the main vim site mentions it and anyone who looks into the issue is likely to encounter it as well as the solution I feel should be preferred. I'm not certain whether or not it really should be included though. I'm open to feedback as to whether or not anyone thinks it just clutters up the issue (I'm also open to any suggestions about other solutions to this problem, perhaps my preferred method isn't the best way and that should certainly be changed if so). --ThePolack 18:25, 19 Apr 2005 (EDT)

My suggestion: Only include the good version, add a footnote with a pointer to the other. --JamesRifkin 15:25, 27 May 2005 (EDT)

Shameless plug: I liked the look of Textmate's variable 'tabbing' so I had a go at recreating it in Vim. I've uploaded the result here. --Felix
