Welcome to exVim

exVim is a project to turn Vim into a nice programming environment. exVim introduce the project file concept (.exvim) in Vim. By editing this project file (.exvim) through Vim, the exVim plugins will be invoked. In this way, it makes you possible to apply different Vim settings, plugin settings and even loading plugins on demand by different projects. In general, it makes Vim become the best IDE in the world!

After Vim has loaded your_project_name.exvim and started, exVim helps you update your project files so you can use your favorite plugins with these files.
