Vim Android App with encrptioin support

cjsmall
I have an android phone.  I want to be able to view some blowfish2-encrypted files that I have placed on the phone.  Does anyone know of a vim app that supports decryption?  I have the "Vim Touch" app installed, but it complains that the content is "too big" when trying to access the encrypted file.  Any other options?

Thanks.

I use the vim compiled for Termux, and it supports blowfish[*]. I can't say
if it will open your file, since "too big" doesn't sound like a blowfish
encryption error.

[*] cm=blowfish2

Anyway, Termux gives you a Linux shell, and then you can just "apt-get
vim". (You could probably even build vim on your device with Termux; I
have built trn on my phone.)

8.0.1350, ":version" says "Huge version without GUI." I use "Hacker's
Keyboard" in order to have a better typing experience.

Thanks Elijah.  I actually have Termux installed but haven't worked with it much yet.  I'll give your suggestion a go!

Much appreciated!
