Project VimR is a Neovim GUI for macOS. Our confident goal is to create an editor that incorporates Neovim functionality while providing the convenience of modern GUI features. We primarily use Swift, but also utilize C/Objective-C when necessary.

The features include Markdown preview, generic HTML preview (which retains scroll position upon reloading), a fuzzy file finder similar to Xcode's "Open Quickly", trackpad support for zooming and scrolling, and the ability to enable ligatures in the Preferences. Additionally, we offer a command line tool and a (Simple) file browser.

  • Flexible workspace model a la JetBrain's IDEs
  • Neovim's runtime-files, needed to embed Neovim in a Cocoa App
