Bexec v0.8: Execute a vim buffer and capture output in split window

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

I released v0.8 of my Bexec vim plugin. The Bexec plugin allows the user to execute the current buffer if it contains a script with a shebang (#!/path/to/interpreter) on the first line or if the default interpreter for the script's type is known by Bexec. The output of the script will be grabbed and displayed in a separate buffer. 

New in this release:

  • Honor splitbelow and splitright vim setting (patch by Christopher Pease).

bexec

Installation instructions:

  1. Download the Vimball
  2. Start vim with: vim bexec-v0.8.vmb
  3. In Vim, type: :source %
  4. Bexec is now installed. Type :Bexec to run it, or use <MapLeader>bx
