VIM Pal is a separate application that provides a file browser for VIM editor. It is intended not to support all the features of an IDE, but only to provide a basic file tree where users can select files for editing in VIM, and to act as a bookmark list for jumping to frequently used directories.

The latest version can be downloaded from Sourceforge project page. Currently only Windows binaries are provided - other OS users will have to compile from source.

To compile the application, you will need Qt (4.6 or later). Project is using qmake, so compilation looks like this:

qmake && make

Note that qmake may be called qmake-qt4 or qmake-qt5 depending on your system and Qt version.

Arch Linux users can install the package via AUR.
