Vimprint - a Vim keystroke parser

I sometimes get asked what software I use to reveal the Vim keystrokes in my video tutorials here on Vimcasts.org. The fact is that I add them by hand in post-production. It’s not fun!

When I run my Core Vim Masterclasses I use Keycastr to show what I’m doing in realtime. Keycastr uses Growl-style notifications to show all keystrokes across all applications, including every letter I type while communicating in a chat room, for example. It’s not ideal, but it’s better than nothing! I would love to have a dedicated program for visualizing my keystrokes in Vim, so I’ve started building Vimprint to scratch that itch.
