Luis Jure has released an updated version of his csound-vim plugin, and Steven
Yi has released a new csound-repl plugin for live coding with Csound.
Luis’ email to the Csound mailing list describes the changes for csound-vim:
After a long time of relative inactivity, I’m happy to announce a new major
release of csound-vim, a set of tools for editing Csound files with Vim.
csound-vim provides syntax recognition and highlighting, folding, auto
completion, on-line reference, and templates, plus a set of macros to compile
your orchestra and listen to the results without leaving the editor. These
tools turn Vim, with all its editing power, into a simple but efficient Csound
Major changes in this release:
It’s on github! now it’s not only easy to install and update, but also to
contribute code. just visit
It’s pathogen-compatible, making it very easy to install and update with
pathogen or any other plugin manager, like Vundle, NeoBundle, or VimPlug;
now it has a formal license: it’s released under the MIT license.
Improvements, updates and new features include:
General clean up and update of the syntax file. lots remain to be done
The list of opcodes was updated to the latest release;
NEW FEATURE: auto-completion of opcode names with Ctl-n / Ctl-p;
Several minor changes and fixes.
I hope that csounders who also use vim will find it useful. comments,
suggestions, ideas (and patches!) are most welcome.
Steven’s plugin is available at
and includes Vim documentation that describes the usage of the plugin.
