Vim - the ubiquitous text editor

Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to make creating and changing any kind of text very efficient. It is included as "vi" with most UNIX systems and with Apple OS X.

Vim is rock stable and is continuously being developed to become even better. Among its features are:
  • persistent, multi-level undo tree
  • extensive plugin system
  • support for hundreds of programming languages and file formats
  • powerful search and replace
  • integrates with many tools

Vimfest 2017 in Berlin

Vim website now on https

[2017-09-02] Since the Vim website hosts scripts, security is relevant. SourceForge now supports using https, but only on sourceforge.io. That is why you now get redirected from vim.org to vim.sourceforge.io. Let me know if something does not work. (Bram Moolenaar)
