Plugins for Collaborative ViM ?


The most well know collaborative vim remains today CoVim. It works pretty well.
CoVim for development is today very useful.

The editor writes:
CoVim is obviously awesome, but that alone doesn’t justify a year of hard work. So, what can we actually do with it?

The problem we initially set out to solve is one that plagued us as students: the annoyance of pair programming on one computer. Pair programming is a great coding technique that turns frustrating work into a team effort, but the physical limitations are a pain. There’s just one screen and one keyboard, so space is cramped and switching writers interrupts the creative flow. With CoVim, you can have your own screen and keyboard, so space is never cramped and time is never wasted switching writers.

But students aren’t the only ones who can benefit. Teaching Assistants can use CoVim to help multiple students during office hours, and a professor can walk through a students code with them one-on-one without ever leaving the office. Going one step further, TA’s could run office hours completely remotely, whenever they had a free second. (Is this a great idea? Probably not, but it is a good example of just how much CoVim can help in academia.)

However there were few small projects trying to mimic similar behavior. Which ones have you heard about?

thank you
