It's been a long time since this thread was started but I have now
implemented rudimentary gesture support for MacVim.
With the latest source code version there are now several new pseudo keys:
<SwipeLeft> <SwipeRight> <SwipeUp> <SwipeDown>
For instance, the following (rather dull) maps let you change buffers
nmap <SwipeLeft> :bN<CR>
nmap <SwipeRight> :bn<CR>
All new keys are bound to nothing by default (I could not think of any
"natural" default bindings for them).
Note that the Pinch/Rotate keys generate a lot of events in one go so
I'm not sure they will be very useful at this point in time. The
swipe keys are more "reliable".
I can't think of anything really useful for this feature yet -- does
anybody have any neat ideas?
