I want to create a note taking app, I like the TextEdit node, but I prefer vim bindings and all the other features vim offers through plugins, neovim has an --embed flag, and a gui application, Can I just embed this instead of the TextEdit node. I know the Godot app and vim talking to each other is another thing , but I can live without it for now

Godot doesn’t support embedding other applications inside, and there are no plans to implement this in the near future. It’s possible to embed Godot into an Android application using subview embedding, but that’s about it.

Thanks, I guess i will have to use the window manager to place vim and my application side by side instead.

What if that program is one created by the Godot engine itself. Could you potentially embed the program such as a text editor, inside a godot game?
