    Quite Extensible. If there is a language that isn't supported by default chances are that there is someone who made a package that supports the language. Crystal is supported via external packages, the most popular of which is vim-crystal..

    > I've never understood why people and to extend vim to try to make it half of an IDE.

    Because vim ships with on any *nix machine and provides a consistent experience no matter where you use it.

    Vim is the DE part and people add plugins or whatever to enrich the text editing experience with LSPs or other language aware plugins, and the I in IDE is in the form of the integration with the tooling already available.

    This[0] might shed some better light on the "why"

    Check out “UNIX as an IDE”. First Google hit; https://blog.sanctum.geek.nz/series/unix-as-ide/ There are some great talks on YouTube but can’t be bothered to search :)
  • What do you use for an IDE and for debugging?
    5 projects | /r/vim | 30 Jan 2023
    I use the CLI as my IDE. For me, that's FreeBSD or OpenBSD most of the time with a little bit of Linux (and as little Windows as possible). I usually wrap it all in a tmux session, but with vim/neovim offering :terminal functionality these days, I could see an alternate universe where that got flipped/inverted.

    I choose vim/neovim because I need a "just" code editor, and also it can be easily leverage my tools capabilities on UNIX way, and you can read more on this article Unix as an IDE, but the all-in-solutions, like an IDE, is not the right tool for code editing, it came with a lot of features and defaults that you in most cases I don't need it, or I have to learn how to use them according to that IDE.

    Your teacher probably subscribes to the idea of Unix as an IDE, and I do too! It's important IMO to avoid holy wars, but there are some spectacular tools built into your Unix computer if you take the time to get to know them.
  • I used Vim as an extension. How can I use it as a full-blown text editor on its own?
    1 project | /r/vim | 11 Jul 2022
    Vim is first and foremost a text-editor. In the Unix philosophy other tools should fill the places of the functionality a fully-fledged IDE gives you. You can add plugins and heavily craft your .vimrc to make it a lot like an IDE. But that's not really the "unix way" so to speak. I'm not necessarily some sort of coding elitist. I'll settle for other tools when I have to. I've also spent more hours than I care to admit making VIM more or less an IDE. But there is a sort of simplicity in being able to develop remotely in a test environment using vim and few other CLI tools. I recommend checking out Unix as and IDE for an intro to what I'm talking about.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing vim-crystal and unix-as-ide you can also consider the following projects:

vim-slang - Vim plugin for Slim-lang in Crystal

vim-codefmt - Vim plugin for syntax-aware code formatting

clojure.vim - Clojure syntax highlighting for Vim and Neovim.

scripting_course - :notebook: Books, reference guides and resources on Regular Expressions, CLI one-liners, Scripting Languages and Vim.

carcin.vim - Vim plugin to provide utility functions for carc.in

zet - Zettelkasten Repo. This is where I dump my knowledge as it happens, all my zettels ("slips" or notes) about almost anything and everything. The idea is rather simple really and very powerful. Be warned, however, just because something is here doesn't mean it is accurate or even that I still believe it.

rainbow_levels.vim - A different approach to code highlighting.

dotfiles - Bootstrap neovim/zsh/tmux environment for Ruby on Rails development

kuroi.vim - A very dark colorscheme for Vim. JOIN THE DARK SIDE!

.dotfiles - :fireworks: Arch Linux with i3 / nvim / tmux / urxvt / zsh / ...

gounit-vim - Vim plugin for https://github.com/hexdigest/gounit

lisp-koans - Common Lisp Koans is a language learning exercise in the same vein as the ruby koans, python koans and others. It is a port of the prior koans with some modifications to highlight lisp-specific features. Structured as ordered groups of broken unit tests, the project guides the learner progressively through many Common Lisp language features.
