bcvi - Back-channel vi

This is a handy little utility for people who use SSH to connect to servers but like to use gvim (a GUI version of vim) to edit files. When you're connected to a remote server (say server.example.com) and type a command like:

bcvi .bashrc

The bcvi utility sends a message back to your workstation which causes a command like this to be run:

gvim scp://server.example.com/.bashrc

Because the editor process is running on your workstation:

  • all your local .vimrc macros, settings, etc are available
  • the GUI is snappy and responsive (unlike an X-forwarded app)
  • when you save the file, it is transparently uploaded via scp
  • your remote shell window is available to run other commands
