Downloads & Updates
Where can I download a build?
Pre-alpha builds are available for users who have pre-ordered via our Early Access Portal.
If you haven't pre-ordered, you can still try it out by following our build instructions.
How do I update my build?
Nightly builds are published to the Early Access Portal.
Where is my license key?
After purchase, you'll receive an invoice from
firstname.lastname@example.org with your key attached.
If you don't receive it - please reach out to email@example.com and we'll get it set for you.
I already backed Onivim 1, do I need to pay again?
Nope! If you supported the project via any of the crowd-sourcing platforms prior to July 31, 2019, you have a lifetime commercial license.
If you did not receive a license key - feel free to send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you set. THANK YOU for supporting the project!
Is Onivim 2 open-source?
However, we value open source - and to that end, we've implemented a 'time-delay' open source license. Each commit that makes it to
master will be dual-licensed under the permissive MIT license after 18 months.
We maintain a separate repo containing the MIT licensed code, which is sync'd daily.
We hope that this can help us strike a balance: the sustainability of a commercial offering while giving back to the open source community.
When we talk about sustainability - we mean not only in the context of Onivim 2, but in the broader context of open-source.
To that end, we dedicate a portion of the proceeds from sales of Onivim 2 to open-source projects we leverage, like:
Do I need multiple licenses to use on multiple machines?
There is no limit to the number of machines you may use the license on, as long as you are the user. The license keys are per-user, not per-computer.
In my opinion, the model of UI as a pure function of
state, as popularized by React, Redux, and Elm, is the simplest way to build a UI-driven app.
ReasonML (which is really OCaml under the hood) is a perfect fit for that paradigm: a performant, functional-focused language.
Can I use my
.vimrc with Onivim 2?
Eventually! This is the goal of our Beta Build milestone.
