So, I’ve been using a range of open source tools for a long time now. Vim, Eclipse, FitNesse, FreeMind, TuxPaint (for the kids), and even a little bit of Ubuntu. I haven’t really contributed much back to the communities I’ve particpated in as a consumer.
Today I put forth my first child into the world. I created a syntax coloring script for Vim/gVim. It’s still pretty rough. I have some more slim and Fit/FitNesse syntax to support. I also should add some FitLibrary support, even though I don’t use that.
If you love FitNesse, and you use Vim, it’s a natural. So far that isn’t too many people. As of this posting, only 5 people have downloaded it. And none of those are a vanity download.
