Vi Pages - Picture Gallery

[vim powered]

Vi is a text editor. You cannot draw pictures with it as it does not give you visual feedback on colours. However, some vi clones have a GUI (graphic user interface) and support for colour. Naturally, the layouts differ on various screens.

These pages has links to some screen shots to give you an idea on the design of those various clones.

2010-03-31: The pictures on this page were lost due to some unfortunate 'backup' to some external hard drive. So.. no pictures. sorry. well.. except the one from Kevin G. Austin in only 114 bytes! vipowered

    VIM Pictures -> Extra Page

    The screenshots for vim have outnumbered those of the other clones - so I had to move them back onto their own page:

    And everything you want to know about VIM is on the VIM Pages:


    The main distribution site for Elvis is:
    Creator: Steve Kirkendall
    Title: Elvis 2.0
    Elvis 2.0 gif (16828 bytes)
    Elvis 2.0 creates a separate top-level application window for each editor window. This example shows some C source being edited, in the "syntax c" display mode. The stripe across the top of the window is a user-configurable toolbar. The red rectangle near the lower-left corner is the cursor. In a real elvis window it flashes, and it changes shape to indicate the current mode (rectangle=command, bar=insert, underscore=replace). The scrollbar is NOT a Motif scrollbar, but an incredible simulation.

    "MacElvis on MacOS"
    Creator: Alain Mellan [970516]
    Alain is working on a Macintosh port for elvis-2.1 right now.


    Creator: [NAME] [961004]
    Title: Lemmy 1.0 with syntax highlighting
    Lemmy 1.0 with syntax highlighting (gif 9407 bytes)
    "This is a GIF of Lemmy version 1.0, with C/C++ highlighting. The menus across the top, provide options consistent with Windows applications. The status bar at the bottom tells you the edit mode, current line/total lines and current column. Lastly, whether or not your edits have been saved with a message indicating either New, Current or Modified."
