What is VimOutliner?
VimOutliner (often abreviated VO) is a computer program to create and
modify outlines. It uses the Vim editor as its basic engine, and shares
most of Vim's keystrokes. VimOutliner has been designed from the bottom
up for maximum input speed, so it's ideal for taking notes,
brainstorming, outlining books and other projects, etc. It runs under
both Linux and Windows. It's free software (GPL v2). It has the
- Body text
- Interoutline linking (Windows installations must have cygwin for interoutline linking)
- Executable lines (embed any content via an executable)
- Checkboxes with completion percentages
The latest tested version is 0.3.5. You can download it as a tarball (.tgz), vimball (.vba) or .zip file at https://github.com/vimoutliner/vimoutliner/downloads. If for some reason that's not available, you can download from this website the 0.3.5 tarball or vimball or zipfile., but remember, the newest versions are always available at the GitHub site.
0.3.4 is an earlier version, which you can download here.
Many Linux distributions have VimOutliner packages. Unfortunately, not
all of them work right. If yours doesn't work right, use the download
from this website, and use its install.sh install script. If you're the
"trust but verify" type of person, you can open install.sh in an editor
to see what it's doing. It's pretty easy to understand. Install
VimOutliner as a regular user, because it installs in the user's home
directory, not computer wide.
