Testing Vimscript

The theme for February's meetup is Testing Vimscript. We've got two talks lines up:

  1. Paul Mucur: Testing Vimscript with Vimrunner
  2. Drew Neil: Testing Vimscript with vspec

The event is kindly being hosted by Funding Circle. Please arrive around 6:45 for a 7pm start.

If the event 'sells out' and you miss the chance for a spot, please sign up for the waitlist. We usually have a few cancellations in the days running up to the event, so most people on the waitlist end up getting a spot.

Join or login to comment.

    Brilliantly informative presentations; also really good to see 2 different frameworks demo'd together. I'd prefer vspec personally, but I know some people who'd be interested in vimrunner.

    I'm glad to hear the double dose of TDD has inspired some of you to start playing with Vimscript. That was the plan! Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with, and hopefully you can demo your creations at a future Vim London meetup.

    I really enjoyed the event, it inspired me to want to start working with vimscript a bit more!

    Sadly I can't make it this evening after all. Any chance of the talks being recorded?

    • Drew N.

      We did record the talks this time. Hopefully we'll be able to publish them online soon.

    As an entry-level Vim user, I didn't know about vimscript (let alone knowingly working with it!), so the talks in this meetup were a great introductions with what can be done with it.

    Definitely enjoyed the practical nature of the talks, and the testing frameworks looked surprisingly good!

    That was very interesting - thanks a lot. Seeing someone actually coding Vimscript has also made me realise that perhaps it's not as terrifying as I thought it was, too.

  • Dave A.

    Really good, have always been frustrated by the lack of vimscript testability, but that's no longer a concern! Some great day to day random vim tips picked up purely by watching two advanced vim users work their magic too.

    Perfect timing for me. Just started to write a vimscript plugin.

    This sounds interesting - what level of understanding of Vimscript will I need to have in order to get something out of this talk?

    February 19, 2013

    • Drew N.

      I don't expect the audience to know much Vim script to follow my talk. Like Paul, I'm planning to show how to test-drive development of a small plugin, only I'll be using a different testing tool.

    Ha, didn't even consider the idea of testing frameworks. Should be interesting.

  • Fayimora F.

    Not sure I'll come for this one as I don't really write vimscript.

  • Beau

    Sounds interesting, but too niche for me

    February 15, 2013

    • Drew N.

      Thanks for the feedback Beau.

      February 15, 2013

  • Jason I.

    Yes, please. Sign me up! I'd love to know how to debug/unit test VimScript.
