NeoVim is a fork of Vim that is focused on adding much-needed modern features. One of the coolest new features of NeoVim is that you can spawn fully-featured terminals inside it. Installing and using NeoVim on Ubuntu is a breeze. I am able to use my Vim configuration and all my Vim plugins without any change with NeoVim!

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:neovim-ppa/unstable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install neovim
$ sudo pip install neovim

Tried with: NeoVim 0.1.3 and Ubuntu 14.04
