Script Roundup: Vader.vim, Textabyss


Vader.vim is a unit testing framework for Vim scripts. It has a BDD style syntax (Do, Given, Expect), and tests are run with the Vader command.

Test file should have the .vader extension. You can split tests into multiple files by using Include. The author has included examples of Vader being used to test real-world projects, including vim-sneak.


Textabyss by Liang Li is a plugin for panning around lots of files. It organises files into columns, and allows you to scroll through columns quickly using the mouse. It's a unique idea that's best explained in a video.
