Veonim – simple modal IDE built on Neovim and VSCode extensions

Veonim is a simple modal IDE built on Neovim and VSCode extensions. The goal is to create an ideal programming environment.

Veonim is bundled with its own custom vim color scheme and the Roboto Mono font. This allows for a consistent out-of-the-box experience across platforms.

Veonim is no longer under active development. The GitHub repository has been deleted.

  • All Veonim features opt-in. Use as much or as little of the IDE features as you want and customize your workflow.
  • Fuzzy search files, buffers, buffer text, project text search (powered by ripgrep).
  • Auto complete with documentation powered by VSCode extensions.
  • Multiple concurrent Neovim instances (like tmux sessions).
  • Fully keyboard driven (no mouse support).
  • Support for nyancat, an animated, color, ANSI-text program that renders a loop of the classic Nyan Cat animation.
  • Any vim color scheme is supported. True color colorschemes are supported.
