  • Running Macsimus(a neovim config) on an iPad! 😤
    2 projects | /r/neovim | 31 May 2022
    As to "posting something someone is proud of", I totally agree that running neovim on an iPad is probably impressive. But my question was how that process is different from, running, say tig, or this terminal typing game, which are all TUIs like neovim, on an iPad. So without further explanation, it doesn't sound to me like this post is specific to neovim at all, just specific to iPads(or some other sub-reddit focussed on running software on platforms they were not intended to run on).
