Compile Vim with Python & Ruby support on OSX with Homebrew (mikegrouchy.com)

There is a terminal version of Vim inside of MacVim.app at Contents/MacOS/Vim.

I like to symlink to MacVim like so: /usr/local/bin/vim -> /usr/local/bin/mvim /usr/local/bin/vimdiff -> /usr/local/bin/mvim

Then put /usr/local/bin higher up in my $PATH. Works like a charm.

This is a pain of compiling vim yourself; definitely makes it easier.

I'm curious. Why do you install Mercurial without Homebrew?

Why would you install Mercurial with Homebrew, it is a python package. As a rule, I generally install all python packages with pip.
