In an attempt to move a step forward with my vim+screen based IDE i spent some time to learn new vim features (you never know them all, right?). Together with some plugins like project and minibufexplorer i soon got pretty close to what i expect from a modern IDE. What i was still missing, though, was quick access to the class reference.
Having a look a the yiic commands that create yii’s online HTML pages, it was quite easy to fork them into a VimApiCommand that created a useful API manual in vim help file format.
To me this is already useful but still misses some fine tuning when it comes e.g. to formatting of the code examples.
I’ll release the files soon, but would like to know first, how many would use them at all.
So if you’re a vim user - show yourself!!
I’ve attached a screenshot that shows how it looks like in action.
