I’m a old-school coder and my first editor was vi on a old terminal hooked to some big-iron unix box. I never recovered – thus I’m still using a modal editor – MacVIM.
MacVIM is a Vim port for OSX with quite some extensions like multiple windows, editor tabs, nice font rendering etc.
There’s also a experimental branch which adds a file-browser side pane, which is implemented in Objective-C and thus very fast.
Keeping up-to-date with this branch is tedious – cloning, pulling in new sources, compiling …
Today I accidentally found the homebrew recipe from Joel Cogen – and in his
read-me a feature of homebrew which was new to me –
brew tap <<github repo name>>.
