An pseudo EDITOR to open a file in a working Vim/Neovim instead of a new one. It has no external dependencies.

This is in alpha stabe. Anything will be drastically changed without announcement.


Open :terminal and execute applications which use $EDITOR internally. For example, git commit uses $EDITOR in default.

Note that $EDITOR includes arguments so you need to use eval to execute it directly like:

$ eval $EDITOR {filename}
