The Carbon gvim is not that great so I sticked to the console vim version. But with the new MacVim, I now have a GUI vim that not only looks much better but also has additional features:
- It has a fullscreen mode.
- Vim’s tab feature uses real tabs instead of ASCII-art tabs.
- There is an ODB input manager that adds an « Edit in MacVim » menu entry to all applications.
There are probably other things, but those are the three I really like. With the « Edit in MacVim » feature, I can now easily write my mails from Apple Mail in vim. Unfortunately, the feature does not work for me in Camino.
