About


What is Neovim?

 Neovim is a Vim-based text editor engineered for extensibility and usability, to encourage new applications and contributions

Vision 

 Neovim is a refactor, and sometimes redactor, in the tradition of Vim (which itself derives from Stevie). It is not a rewrite but a continuation and extension of Vim. Many clones and derivatives exist, some very clever—but none are Vim. Neovim is built for users who want the good parts of Vim, and more. 

Goals

  • Enable new contributors, remove barriers to entry.
  • Unblock plugin authors.
  • Develop first-class Lua/LuaJIT scripting alternative to VimL.
  • Target all platforms supported by libuv.
  • Leverage ongoing Vim development.
  • Optimize out of the box, for new users but especially regular users.
  • Deliver consistent cross-platform experience.
  • In matters of taste/ambiguity, favor tradition/compatibility...
  • ...but prefer usability if the benefits are extreme.

Non-goals

  • Turn Vim into an IDE
  • Limit third-party applications (such as IDEs!) built with Neovim
  • Deprecate VimL
  • POSIX vi-compatibility
