Pre-built packages for Windows, macOS, and Linux are found on theReleases page.
The build is CMake-based, but a Makefile is provided as a convenience.
make CMAKE\_BUILD\_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo sudo make install
To install to a non-default location:
make CMAKE\_INSTALL\_PREFIX=/full/path/ make install
To skip bundled (
sudo apt install gperf luajit luarocks libuv1-dev libluajit-5.1-dev libunibilium-dev libmsgpack-dev libtermkey-dev libvterm-dev libutf8proc-dev sudo luarocks build mpack sudo luarocks build lpeg sudo luarocks build inspect
make CMAKE\_BUILD\_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo USE\_BUNDLED=OFF sudo make install
To inspect the build, these CMake features are useful:

Vim is Charityware. You can use and copy it as much as you like, but you are encouraged to make a donation for needy children in Uganda. Please see the kcc section of the vim docs or visit the ICCF web site, available at these URLs: http://iccf-holland.org/ http://www.vim.org/iccf/ http://www.iccf.nl/ You can also sponsor the development of Vim. Vim sponsors can vote for features. The money goes to Uganda anyway.
