I don't know if you're aware, but lilypond comes with vim support (highlighting, macros, etc). The beauty of lilypond being text based is you can customize your environment. Frescobaldi is a very good option and has served me well, but it's not the only option.

I've used Vim for several years now, for text editing and WordPress / LaTeX projects, but never really got it working well with LilyPond. Instead, I've stuck with Frescobaldi and I have a good workflow now.

But I'm curious: do you have any LilyPond-specific snippets in your .vimrc file that help you with inputting music?

Can you share some tips or advice on how you use Vim with LilyPond? I'd be interested to hear a brief overview of your workflow - maybe I should give Vim another chance ;)
