We love vim, but we want more. We want a terminal-based IDE that looks like vim, handles like vim, but has all those nice features of Eclipse and Sublime, is integrated with git, and is fully coded in python.
For more information about the Rationale behind the project, the development
methodology and the planned features see the
RATIONALE document <https://github.com/stefanoborini/vai/blob/master/RATIONALE.rst>_.
See the current vim keys compatibility list in the
FEATURES document <https://github.com/stefanoborini/vai/blob/master/FEATURES.rst>_.
Note: vai is currently focused mostly on Python editing. Future additions will handle other languages.
You can get the latest version of vai from
pypi <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/vai>_, either manually
or via pip
pip3.4 install vai
Important Note: you need python 3.4. Python 3.3 will not work.

about the release changes.
If you want to contribute to Vai, a good place to start is to read the
Design document <https://github.com/stefanoborini/vai/blob/master/docs/Design.rst>_.
If you want to develop plugins, the document
WritingPlugins <https://github.com/stefanoborini/vai/blob/master/docs/WritingPlugins.rst>_ is what you are
looking for. Keep into account that the API is evolving, and at the moment, rather limited.
