To install, drag the
MacVim.app to the
Applications folder. You are good to go by double clicking

PATH, enter the following command on Terminal.
sudo vi /etc/paths
Enter your password and you will see all the paths you have. Add
the path to the mvim script to this file, save and quit.
Open a new Terminal. You should be able to start MacVim from Terminal
with the following command.
You can customize your MacVim to suit your needs. For doing this create
.vimrc file at your home location. You can download my
customizations from https://github.com/sunainapai/dotfiles.
