Git access from within vim

Today a line was crossed.  I’m not sure if it was the insanity of spending all day writing nine lines of Python (I am not a developer… I am not a developer… I am not a developer.) or what, but I really wanted to do git commands from within vim (my editor of choice).  A quick search turned up the properly-named git-vim.  The program does just what I want it to: be able to ‘git add’, ‘git commit’, and ‘git push’ all while never leaving vim.  It also does other things but these are the basics that I want.  If you want this functionality I recommend git-vim.

    The usual recommendation is called “fugitive”.

      I’ve not heard of that one. Does it do the same thing?

    Sounds like you’re starting to make vim do as much as emacs can do. Welcome to the dark side. :-)
