MacVim is a port of the text editor Vim to Mac OS X that is meant to look better and integrate more seamlessly with the Mac than the older Carbon port of Vim.

MacVim supports multiple windows with tabbed editing and a host of other features such as:

  • bindings to standard OS X keyboard shortcuts (⌘-Z, ⌘-V, ⌘-A, ⌘-G, etc.),
  • transparent backgrounds,
  • full-screen mode,
  • multibyte editing with OS X input methods and automatic font substitution,
  • ODB editor support,
  • and more...
Most importantly, MacVim brings you the full power of Vim 7.2 to Mac OS X.

What's New

Version 7.4 (snapshot 73):
