GVim Portable 7.0.1 - Pre-Release

I have created a new portable version of the editor named GVim (which is the gui-version of vim).

New features:

  • Directory structure is compatible to portableapps.com
  • use a default vimrc if the user does not provide one (needed for in-place upgrades)
  • live-cd support: there is no single write operation
  • fancy splash-screen Eye

The selfextracting archives can be downloaded from their temporary locations.

The full featured version (4.48 MB):
[edit]now released on http//portablegvim.sf.net[/edit]

A lightweight version (1.98 MB):

Happy testing and best regards, kampi

Gvim Fans, Test It Out

This app is being added to the Portable Apps Directory once it's passed muster with the community Smiling

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Works good for me

I don't use vi much, but this seems to me a good working copy of the gvim program. I tested out the ini options and the operation of both the LW and full versions with no problems, that I see.

Good work kampi.

released

Thanks a lot for your testing effort! I think and hope it is stable, so I released it on sourceforge.

Works

Portable Gvim works great, except for 1 thing. On my parents computer, normal Gvim has no menubar or syntax highlighting. This happens to Portable Gvim as well, although it works fine on every other computer.

Personally, I'd rather use

Personally, I'd rather use SciTE Portable, because it's less than 1/4 the size of gvim.

Actually...

Actually, Portable gVim leaves its _viminfo file in $HOME. That really should be fixed.

+ruby?

Hi,

I have seen that the configuration of scripting languages compiled into vim is minimal. Personally, I'd like to see a super charged version with a larger filesize but all options (particularly +ruby) enabled.

Thanks
