Vi iMproved (Vim) - console only

8.1

Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator gep13 on 6/13/2018.

Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing. It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems.

Vim is often called a programmer's editor, and so useful for programming that many consider it an entire IDE. It's not just for programmers, though. Vim is perfect for all kinds of text editing, from composing email to editing configuration files.

This package is a console-only low impact installation of Vim. The only impact on the system is done if you choose to register file associations with Vim. To do so, pass package parameter string with the comma-separated list of extensions you want to have associated with Vim. Example: --params '.txt,.ps1,.php'.

To install Vi iMproved (Vim) - console only, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install vim-console

To upgrade Vi iMproved (Vim) - console only, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
