Real Vim ninjas count every keystroke - do you? Head on over to, pick a challenge, and show us what you've got!

  • Each challenge provides an input file, and an output file
  • Your goal is to modify the input file such that it matches the output
  • Once you install the vimgolf CLI, pick a challenge, open a prompt and put away!

When you launch a challenge from the command line, it will be downloaded from the site and a local Vim session will be launched, which will log every keystroke you make. Once you're done, simply :wq (write and quit) the session and we will score your input and upload it back to the site!
