A lively vi.


We love vim. We want more! Test coverage. Flexibilty. Live REPLs!

Guiding Principles

  • Test driven. All functionality covered by tests.
  • Don't defeat vim muscle memory.
  • Code is for people. Be expressive as hell.
  • Be friendly. Especially to noobs.

Code of Welcoming Conduct

Everybody has boundaries around who they invite into their home. To help you decide whether you want to hang out with us, we've done our best to describe our boundaries here in the maitria code of conduct. It's not a bunch of legalese. It's who we are. Please read it.


We track upcoming work on a Trello board. This board has many small things that are easy to pick up, and we'd love to see you.

I (Jason Felice) would love to walk through the code with you pretty much any time during the US Eastern work day. Ping me any time on Twitter - I'm @eraserhd - or gchat.


Our intention is for the unit tests to provide friendly documention of what's been implemented so far. To run the unit tests with verbose output, use

$ lein midje :print-facts


  • Works with Leiningen 2.3.4
  • On Linux,
    or equivalent must be installed.
$ git clone
$ cd avi
$ lein install /usr/local

On Linux, you'll likely not have access to

. In that case you'll need to use
sudo lein install
instead or specify a different installation directory.
