So this will be the last post on vim for a while (I’m not obsessed really!) but I thought you all should know about MacVim (not to be confused with Mac Vim). It’s a project aimed at integrating better with OS X than the standard port. It has nice looking tabs, toolbars with macish looking buttons (which I turn off of course…don’t need buttons crowding up my text editor!), transparent background, and key bindings to some of the more important “standard” OS X shortcuts (Cmd-o, Cmd-v, etc). It’s a bunch of little things that add up to make vim feel like a native app.
