Hi everyone, Thanks for all the valuable suggestions.
The method I found out to be the most suitable, dependecy free and sane (this is highly personal) was to write bash tests which in turn invokes vim with a given number of flags and which sources a given script which ends with either "qall!" (exit code 0) or "cquit!" (exit code 1). You can check an example of such tests in: 1. https://github.com/python-mode/python-mode/blob/develop/tests/test.sh 2. https://github.com/fmv1992/vim_dictionary/blob/dev/tests/test.sh Example: Bash invokes: $ vim -i NONE -u /tmp/vimdict_vimrc -c 'source ./test_procedures_vimscript/lookup1.vim' /tmp/vimdict_disposable.py File `./test_procedures_vimscript/lookup1.vim` has: ~~~~~~ " [...] " Put assertions before. call assert_true(bufexists('vim_dictionary-scratch')) if len(v:errors) > 0 echom "Exiting lookup1 with errors" . join(v:errors, '|') cquit! else qall! endif ~~~~~~ It is also worth noting that vim's `verbosefile` option is valuable as well.
