# Scrivener for Vim?

I really enjoy the workflow in Scrivener, but I don't like the non-vim nature of it. Is there a good alternative plugin for vim that let's you manage documents in a similar way? I'm most interested in the ability to sort and compile documents.

My goal would be to have the ability to edit a document in multiple parts. I'm imagining something like NerdTree, but with the ability to vertically rearrange files in an arbitrary way. It is important that the files are ultimately compiled down into a single document. I imagine that this could be done with Pandoc, but I don't know how well integrated that may be. It would be really slick if there was a way to simply append certain documents together and have that save as a new file.

• It's not entirely sure to me what exactly you're looking for, perhaps that's because I've never used Scrivener. "Edit a document in multiple parts" can be done by simply have several files in a directory. "Compiling" them to a single document is simply appending them all to one document, and rearranging files can be done my renaming them (e.g. you could prefix them with a number: 10-introduction, 20-first-chapter, etc.) – Martin Tournoij Jan 18 '16 at 15:11
