My quest to go all-in with vim continues to make progress. This progress was held up a bit with my recent work on C++ within the university. With all the cruft that surrounds C++ development a full featured IDE seemed tempting. So over the Thanksgiving break I spent some time working on yesman (available at GitHub). Yesman is a command line application that will create and manage your C++ projects including unit testing. It will create a project, download and compile Google Test, and help you stub out C++ classes, headers and testing fixtures.
It is not quite finished. Future versions of yesman will include a system that allows you to build your c++ project through yesman using a managed make build process. Feel free to fork, tweak give feedback at the GitHub repo
