Modern Modal Editing

Oni is a new kind of editor, focused on maximizing productivity - combining modal editing with features you expect in modern editors. Oni is built with neovim, and inspired by VSCode, Atom, LightTable, and Emacs

The vision of Oni is to build an editor that allows you to go from thought to code as easily as possible - bringing together the raw editing power of Vim, the feature capabilities of Atom/VSCode, and a powerful and intuitive extensibility model - wrapped up in a beautiful package.

Check out Releases for the latest binaries, or Build Oni from source. Consider making a donation via OpenCollective BountySource if you find this project useful!


Oni brings several IDE-like integrations to neovim:

And more coming - check out our Roadmap

Oni is cross-platform and supports Windows, Mac, and Linux.

If you're a Vim power user, and don't need all these features, check out our minimal configuration.


We have installation guides for each platform:

The latest binaries are available on our Releases page, and if you'd prefer to build from source, check out our Development guide.


The goal of this project is to provide both the full-fledged Vim experience, with no compromises, while pushing forward to enable new productivity scenarios.

  • Modern UX - The Vim experience should not be compromised by terminal limitations.
  • Rich plugin development - using JavaScript, instead of VimL.
  • Cross-platform support - across Windows, OS X, and Linux.
  • Batteries included - rich features are available out of the box - minimal setup needed to be productive.
  • Performance - no compromises, Vim is fast, and Oni should be fast too.
  • Ease Learning Curve - without sacrificing the Vim experience.

Vim is an incredible tool for manipulating text at the speed of thought. With a composable, modal command language, it is no wonder that Vim usage is still prevalent today.

However, going from thought to code has some different challenges than going from thought to text. Code editors today provide several benefits that help to reduce cognitive load when writing code, and that benefit is tremendously important - not only in terms of pure coding efficiency and productivity, but also in making the process of writing code enjoyable and fun.

The goal of this project is to give an editor that gives the best of both worlds - the power, speed, and flexibility of using Vim for manipulating text, as well as the rich tooling that comes with an IDE. We want to make coding as efficient, fast, and fun as we can!
