vitabs - a Vim inspired guitar tab editor

Any vim-loving guitar players out there?
I've made this as a practice in python and curses, it may not be the most advanced tab editor out there, but the basic functionality is there. The thing is still work-in-progress.

Ok, thanks for the information. I'm just getting started with packaging for arch. Feel free to tell me if I got something else wrong.

Re: vitabs - a Vim inspired guitar tab editor

This is a wonderful concept, thanks for the contribution! big_smile Just out of curiosity, how would one, say, insert something such as a vibrato marker or sliding from fret to fret? I looked at the documentation and didn't see any mention of "special" symbols in guitar tab; I apologize if it really was in there!

It's not yet implemented, neither are things like tempo changes. I'll be adding these features gradually. Some things like specifying track tempo and tuning are already possible, but lack proper interface.
Recently added: selection of MIDI output port.

As there was some interest in the project (thanks for the positive comments!), I thought I'll post a little update.
* It is now possible to add some symbols in the tablature (but it's a bit ugly and needs to be implemented in the MIDI player)
* Some commands work over a range/motion (like deleting and playing, e.g. r$ plays to the end of the bar)
* User config scrips
and some minor improvements. For details see updated manual and git log.
