I'm a diehard vim user currently being forced to use overleaf for latex editing by various collaborators.

Since overleaf has both a vim mode and support for keybindings, I was wondering if anyone had ported vim-latex to overleaf.

I can't find anything, but surely I can't be the first vim user forced into this situation!

BTW: I'd equally well love to hear about any other latex suite for vim/emacs that has been ported to overleaf; I just want an ease of use comparable to what I currently enjoy on vim.

  • Welcome to TeX.SE! Maybe you should ask the Overleaf support. – CarLaTeX Oct 20 at 19:30
  • They don't officially endorse these scripts. I found a couple of basic scripts on greasyfork, but nothing with anywhere near the level of functionality I'm looking for. – Ronak M Soni Oct 20 at 19:33
  • Or you could just use overleaf's git integration and and stick to your own vim setup – DG' Oct 20 at 20:10
  • That's what I've been doing, but the reason I'm being forced is that overleaf offers simultaneous editing of the same file, which cannot be handled (I think) by any setup where I'm using my local vim. – Ronak M Soni Oct 21 at 3:10
