VimR — Neovim GUI for macOS


Screenshot 1 Screenshot 2


Project VimR is a Neovim GUI for macOS written in Swift.

The goal is to build an editor that uses Neovim inside with many of the convenience GUI features similar to those present in modern editors. We mainly use Swift, but also use C/Objective-C when where appropriate.

There are other Neovim GUIs for macOS, see the list, so why?

  • Play around with Neovim,
  • play around with Swift (and especially with RxSwift),
  • Play around with the main idea of Redux architecture, and
  • (most importantly) have fun!

If you feel chatty, there is a chat room:

If you want to support VimR financially, use Github's Sponsor.


Pre-built Universal signed and notarized binaries can be found under Releases.

Reusable Components

  • RxMsgpackRpc: Implementation of MsgpackRpc using RxSwift.
  • RxNeovimApi: RxSwift wrapper of Neovim API.
  • NvimView: SwiftPM module containing an NSView which bundles everything, e.g., Neovim binary and its runtime-files, needed to embed Neovim in a Cocoa App.

Some Features

  • Markdown preview
  • Generic HTML preview (retains the scroll position when reloading)
  • Fuzzy file finder a la Xcode's "Open Quickly..."
  • Trackpad support: Pinching for zooming and two-finger scrolling.
  • Ligatures: Turned off by default. Turn it on in the Preferences.
  • Command line tool.
  • (Simple) File browser
  • Flexible workspace model a la JetBrain's IDEs

How to Build

Clone this repository. Install homebrew, then in the project root:

git submodule init
git submodule update

xcode-select --install # install the Xcode command line tools, if you haven't already
brew bundle

clean=true notarize=false ./bin/
# will be placed in ./build/Build/Products/Release/
