Distraction-free writing in Vim with goyo.vim

Written on October 23, 2015

I’ve been exploring Vim again lately and I stumbled across some of June Gunn Choi’s excellent work.

He’s created many useful and elegant Vim plugins, one of which is called goyo.vim, a distraction-free writing experience in Vim. Goyo reminds me a lot of iA Writer on the Mac. All UI elements get out of the way so you can focus on simply writing.

If you’re a Vim user and want a distraction-free writing experience, definitely checkout goyo.vim.
