St. Louis Vim Geeks: “The State of Neovim” by Kyle Pointer

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:
- 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).
