VimOutliner README file Introduction VimOutliner is an outline processor with many of the same features as Grandview, More, Thinktank, Ecco, etc. Features include tree expand/collapse, tree promotion/demotion, level sensitive colors, interoutline linking, and body text. What sets VimOutliner apart from the rest is that it's been constructed from the ground up for fast and easy authoring. Keystrokes are quick and easy, especially for someone knowing the Vim editor. VimOutliner can be used without the mouse (but is supported to the extent that Vim supports the mouse). Many of the VimOutliner commands start with a double comma ",," because that's very quick to type. All VimOutliner files have the ".otl" extension. For help on VimOutliner type ":h vo". For an overview of all the most important VimOutliner commands you can type ":h votl_cheatsheet" when you have opened an otl file. * Usage VimOutliner has been reported to help with the following tasks: - Project management - Password wallet - To-do lists - Account and cash book - 'Plot device' for writing novels - Inventory control - Hierarchical database - Web site management * Characteristics - Fast and effective - Fully integrated with Vim - Extensible through plugins - Many post-processing scripts allow exporting to multiple formats - Extensive documentation For more information on the use of VimOutliner see the README.detailed file in this directory.
