Interesting concept. Design could be improved a little bit. Great to see an app that works on all platforms. ;)

btw, is a sleeper agent allowed to be a sleeper agent for your competitors, like a double sleeper agent? ;)

Haha! Good question...

I'm curious about the results.

It reminds me of this guy from Germany who told us that nomad workers are only abusing other people places...

We put this app together in 1 hour, it's rather a quick hack for fetching RSS entries than a complicated project. In terms of design there are like 2 pages: list and single entry. You can use this code to create a « mobile app » for your own blog. I wouldn't go so far and say we give away our work for free...

Nice one!

I couldn't agree more, I hope this collaboration brings something really cool

Nowadays, polyglot approach is the only right path for a software company. When I arrived in Berlin a month ago, I was positively surprised that SoundCloud supports local Clojure or functional programming groups. Keep up with great work!

And, of course, they regularly host the Berlin Go User Group.

Thanks for your feedback! I started this project to reduce friction when new members join our team. In that context « vimified » was meant to be associated with a person who gets a ready-to-use « vim bundle », but as you probably noticed I'm not a native English speaker. ;)

Yes, that's true! I was hoping to introduce some kind of convention, a starting point. Usually vimrc have some similarities I wanted to consolidate what seems common and eventually show how to combine it with some specific elements (a particular programming language or technology)

I appreciate what you're doing. Whatever you do try not to hinder people learning vim as a core. After installing Janus, I decided that I wasn't learning Vim anymore, I was learning Janus. Getting rid of Janus and MacVim and starting off with a tiny .vimrc allowed me to actually learn Vim. It was the single best thing I did to learn Vim. Since then my .vimrc has grown pretty large (compared to what it was when I started), but it's all mine now. It fits my workflow and it's perfect.

I partially agree with you, Janus is certainly a bit complicated and may hinder people learning vim. With vimified I wanted to keep the traditional approach but make it more powerful from the start. For example, I will try no to split vimrc into separate files, there should be always only one base file (+ folding). You get the base, a convention, but there will be certainly things to be adjusted on your own along the way. That was the idea...
