Vim

Vim

Vim dates back all the way to 1991 when Vim's author, Bram Moolenaar released it to the public. Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing. The software is released as free and open-source software under the Vim License. Vim is often called a "programmer's editor," as it relies more on customization of shortcuts and makes heavy use of macros that can be combined with muscle memory to achieve maximum proficiency. Vim was designed for use in both command-line interfaces and as a standalone application in a graphical user interface.
