Neovim is a refactor, and sometimes redactor, in the tradition of Vim (which itself derives from Stevie). It is not a rewrite but a continuation and extension of Vim. Many clones and derivatives exist; some are very clever, but none are Vim. Neovim strives to be a superset of Vim except for some intentionally-removed misfeatures. It is built for users who want the good parts of Vim, and more.
