Cream is a free, easy-to-use configuration of the famous Vim text editor for Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and FreeBSD. It uses common menus, standard keyboard shortcuts, and has extensive editing functions for the beginner and expert alike.

UPDATE: Development has slowed recently due to the author's full time endeavor to begin an architectural practice (http://SteveHallArchitecture.com). But the project still continues to build gVim installers and add minor features and bug fixes in the Cream source code.

User Reviews

  • More features than vanilla vim

  • Also blocked by corporate firewall, version gvim-7-4-2066.exe. I was told the package is "obfuscating a payload using a crypter".

  • Current installation package (gvim-7-4-1641.exe) is blocked by my corporate firewall because of HotBar.G_2 (Adware) included in the package.

  • The best vi version... :D Cream is very powerful and beautiful editor!!!!

  • Can you make CREAM work for vim74 ? I modified the batch files for install and run, but it still comes up with error messages upon startup of Cream in the new vim74 subfolder.
