Easily install the latest GUI Vim application
Authored by: Seth Milliken on Jan 06, '08 06:45:01PM
How is this method easier than just using MacPorts? e.g.
port install vim-app
And what advantages does it offer over the MacPorts installation?

It accomplishes pretty much the same thing, except that you don't need Mac Ports to do it, and the patch level will be more recent, if only just (I'm using patch level 242, and MacPorts distributes patch level 241 right now)

aside from that, I had a bad experience with macports last year (my first time): It consistently failed to compile the latest version of vim. This method is pretty much failproof, and completely within your control (unlike macports).
