I'll probably use
nvim now since we can remotely control it with python or what have you.
However, there are annoyances in moving over (I'm on 0.1.3).
set listdoesn't show the eol character.
You can avoid all this by putting this in yout
set ruler set laststatus=0 set mouse=v set listchars=tab:-\ ,trail:-,nbsp:+,eol:$
In addition, in gnu screen or tmux, the escape key is harder to press. You can put
maptimeout 10 in your .screenrc to fix in this gnu screen. It's something to do with nvim using a new library for user input, I believe.
Anyway, we're on 0.1.3, so thing will change.
