The State of Neovim

According to the Neovim Github project page at https://github.com/neovim/neovim

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

It all sounds promising, but is it really going to happen? And is it even a good idea?

Kyle Pointer’s going to bring us up to speed on all things NeoVim, including:

  • Why?
  • What’s new?
  • Who’s doing it?
  • What works?
  • What doesn’t?
  • How can I help?

It promises to be interesting (and maybe even a little controversial).
