Running VimR From the Command Line

If you want to open VimR from the command line here is what you need to do;

Create a bash script in /usr/local/bin/ called vimr

In that file write the following;

#!/bin/bash

open -a VimR.app "[email protected]"

Make the script writeable by calling chmod u+x vimr.

Now you can call vimr filename to open a specific file or folder, or if you call vimr . it will open the current working directory in VimR.

Notes

  • Thanks so much dnerdy for posting this script in a GitHub Issue I created.
  • You don't need to have this in /usr/local/bin/ it can be anywhere that can be seen in your path.
