Been away from Vim for a while. Skills rusty. I’ve got iVim running on my iPad. I’d like to put my files in the cloud—Dropbox or iCloud—so they can be accessed from MacVim on my MacBook.

Tarball has been suggested as the best way to move files from my iVim documents folder. Haven’t a clue how to go about it. I’ve always found Vim help difficult to navigate, and often to understand. References to it appreciated. Even more references to other sources.

Thanks,

I have a server at home, so usually when I work outside with an iPad, I use Termius to SSH to the server and use the vim from there.

iOS apps are operating in a sandbox, which makes it difficult to get access to iCloud files other than the Apps folder. So I personally recommend you use SSH instead (in the worst case you can try VNC).

Thanks, Riley. I’ve downloaded it. Will give it a try. Though the pro version is still inexpensive, as I’ll probably only need to use the app once, I’m hoping the free version will do the job for me.

Thanks, Baksi.

As mentioned, I’ve been away from Vim for a while, and from Unix even longer. For that I’m going to give the solution suggested by Riley a try first.

Web searching informs me that there is a way to run a shell in iOS, which is not natively provided, e.g., via this app, which provides a robust, but not complete, emulation of Unix. <https://osxdaily.com/2018/12/11/ish-linux-shell-ios/>
