I wrote a bit of a Vim plugin today called MacDict. I’ve hacked on other people plugins a bit but I don’t think I’ve ever written one of my own.

Anyhow, it’s purpose is to allow you to search your system (OSX) dictionary from within Vim. It avoids stealing focus so while the is visible you can read the definition and continue writing without interruption.

It’s all part of a much larger document that I’m writing which describes my Vim setup for writing. For now though, this short post will have to do.

If you are interested you can check out the code on GitHub.
