I’m using my wife’s MacBook Pro to see if it would be reasonably painless to integrate a MacBook laptop into my Linux workflow.
It seems like the main port of gVim to Mac is MacVim which requires Xcode to compile. If it takes 4GB of Xcode to compile a lightweight (~10MB) editor like Vim I must be going down the wrong path.
I also tried Mac OS X Vim from SourceForge, but that was just broken and I didn’t want to spend the time fighting with it.
I just want a lightweight editor not a full blown 4GB IDE. I’m really surprised I’m getting hung up on Vim support on a UNIX based machine. I want a GUI version of Vim since I’m not a Vim jedi yet.
