vi Launcher 1.0

Is vi your favourite text file editor/viewer? 'vi' Launcher is a dockable Applescript application which makes the vi editor work with drag'n'drop and double-click. It starts up the Terminal app (or opens a new Terminal window) with vi running in the window and opened on the selected or "dropped" file. If multiple files are dragged'n'dropped they may be edited in sequence using the :n command of vi, just as if vi was started from the command line with many file arguments.

The vi Launcher script is easy to adapt to almost any Unix command-line program, not just vi.
