Neovim – 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.

Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to:
– Simplify maintenance and encourage contributions
– Split the work between multiple developers
– Enable advanced UIs without modifications to the core
– Maximize extensibility

– Modern GUIs
– API access from any language including C/C++, C#, Clojure, D, Elixir, Go, Haskell, Java/Kotlin, JavaScript/Node.js, Julia, Lisp, Lua, Perl, Python, Racket, Ruby, Rust
– Embedded, scriptable terminal emulator
– Asynchronous job control
– Shared data (shada) among multiple editor instances
– XDG base directories support
– Compatible with most Vim plugins, including Ruby and Python plugins
