Vim Options is a graphical tool to edit Vim options inside a file like ".vimrc". Options are defined using "set" command of the Vim script language. Each option can be added, removed, modified using a dedicated user interface. Option "Help" button shows the documentation of a particular option.

Vim is a well-known text editor. It's highly configurable and even supports a scripting language that can be used to tweak editor behaviour, write macros, script and plugins. The main configuration script file is usually placed at "$HOME/.vimrc". This vim config file has some options tweaking as well as some globally useful functions and key mappings.

All the vim settings in the application are grouped in categories according to the official documentation. You can see all the settings, or filter only your own Vim config settings, as well as filter by a custom search criteria that matches Vim option names and descriptions. If you want to adjust your Vim config file, the app will generate a dedicated section with customised variables keeping your existing configuration.

Doesn't read existing configuration file

The help says it "load & save VIM settings to .vimrc" It doesn't load the existing file.

Does not read my existing .vimrc file

This might be useful for creating a new .vimrc file from scratch. But it failed to read my existing (working) .vimrc file.

Possibly a good way to get a comprehensive overview of possible settings.

Only contact options the developer provides are Twitter and LinkedIn.

Ok, just a dollar, but still needs work.

Another waste of money

Don’t waste your money on this or Dinvim. Both are a waste. Just download an open source version of vi / vim.
