shellasync.vim plugin for asynchronously executing shell commands in vim
shellasync.vim plugin allows you to asynchronously execute shell commands inside vim and see output inside a seperate window buffer without waiting for a command to finish. It also includes shell emulator so you can interactivly execute commands inside vim buffer. It uses python's subprocess and threading capabilities to execute shell commands in seperate thread and non-blockingly get the output as the command executes
Note: this plugin is highly experimental, so it might make your vim process unstable
Bonus: this plugin has simple terminal emulator that is sufficient for most terminal related tasks, start it using :ShellTerminal command. You can also start any programming language REPL in it and connect any vim buffer to directly send code from that buffer to REPL using :ShellSelect and :ShellSend commands.
Platform: only unix based operating systems are supported
Requirements: vim 7.3 with atleast 569 patchset included and compiled with python support
