RMVIM

Summary

Vim GUI (MacVim, GVim) plugin to make remote editing more easy (based on TextMate 2.0's rmate feature).

Requirements

This script is meant to be used with MacVim or GVim on a Mac or linux system. It uses the Netrw functionality of vim to remotely edit files.

Installation

  1. Install the rmvim.vim plugin in your local .vim directory.
    Or use a plugin system such as Plug: Plug 'wannesm/rmvim.vim
  2. Copy the file rmvim.vim/util/rmvim to your remote host to a directory that is in your path.
  3. If you want to use gvim instead of mvim add the following to your .vimrc:
    let g:rmvim_cmd = 'gvim'
    Other options include vimr, ...

Usage

Open a MacVim or GVim instance at least once. If this plugin is installed, this will automatically activate a listener (an instance of the nc command).

Open a connection to your remote host with the command

ssh -R 52699:localhost:52699 yourhost

On your remote host start editing a file with the following command:

rmvim ./path/to/file

The remote file opens locally in MacVim.
