A file broswer for macvim?


So in my foray into learning vi/vim, I’ve discovered a wonderful fork of the already awesome macvim with a built-in file-browser. Now, apparently you can add a file browser to any vi/vim with plugins, but this version is written in Obj-C so it’s native to OSX.

And of course with my luck the fork hasn’t been updated in almost a year.

So I spent a few minutes today to fork the fork and merge in all the latest commits from the upstream macvim repo.

If anyone wants to use this fork, the easiest way is with homebrew, just edit the macvim formula:

brew edit macvim

Find this line:

head 'https://github.com/b4winckler/macvim.git', :branch => 'master'

And replace it with this:

head 'https://github.com/jocelynmallon/macvim.git', :branch => 'split-browser'

Then install from head (be sure to uninstall the old version first if you already had it installed):

brew install macvim --HEAD --override-system-vim

File/Doc icons for macvim

So for anyone out there that uses MacVim, but can’t stand the default application and document icons, I generated a couple sets of custom icons, based on the gorgeous replacement icons by Jason Long, Drew Yeaton, 1024jp, mdznr and IMEOS.

Just to be crystal clear, I didn’t create any of the artwork, I just generated the various file type .icns files.

UPDATE – 26 August, 2014: I added a fourth option based on the proposed “Yosemite” icon for MacVim by JasonLong.
UPDATE – 27 August, 2014: I’ve added a fifth option now, based on another proposed icon by mdznr.

Any of the icon sets can be downloaded here:

Terminal Color Schemes

thayer bright molokai
japanesque idletoes

So if anyone out there is like me and prefers the default OSX Terminal.app, but is jealous of the wonderful color schemes available for iTerm2, I’ve ported a few of them over.

You can find all the ports here: https://girlintroverted.wordpress.com/terminal/

I’ll update that page with new themes whenever I have time

Quick Edit: Just wanted to add that I’m currently bouncing between the “Japanesque” and “idleToes” themes for my personal use.
