VimTer - Run (neo-)VIM in the integrated TERminal
Visual Studio Code is a very strong editor that easily covers 90% of the typical text editing needs. But there are times when you need that missing 10% for just a few editing steps (e.g. macros, ex-mode tricks or some nice vim normal-mode combos).
This is where VimTer steps in. It simply runs (neo-)vim in the terminal panel of vscode, opens your current file in vim and jumps to the same cursor position. It does not open vim in a new window on purpose to avoid disrupting your workflow. Think of it as a kind of a temporary power mode (or vim mode), that opens right below your text for just a few edits before you return to your normal editing routine in vscode.
VimTer has two ways to open a file in Vim:
Vim or neovim needs to be installed for VimTer to work. By default VimTer calls out to nvim so you need to set your path environment variable accordingly.
