4191Re: embedding vim
- Oct 8, 2006If I have some time, is there any way I can help? Having embedded vim
is my "dream goal" for a text editor in mac applications.
I'm interested in putting vim in insertmode (or possibly using Cream
with OS X if possible) and having a few things controllable from the
OS X application. Switching buffers based on some interface selection
in the OS X application as well as saving, opening and closing. My
interface otherwise acts as a semi-ide. I'd prefer one instance of
VIM while just using buffers to switch files.
The other thing I'd like to catch is the notification that tells you
when a file on disk has changed. My application also changes files
that the embedded vim may be editing. I need to always answer "yes,
load the new file".
Feel free to e-mail me off list to discuss this.
