This project is my vim setup. It's intended to work on a Linux box with a vim
+python, though it should load just fine even otherwise, only
with less features.
To try it out, backup your
.vimrc and your
.vim directory and checkout this
~/.vim. Afterwards, create a symbolic link from
~/.vimrc and checkout all submodules:
git clone git://github.com/AndrewRadev/Vimfiles.git ~/.vim ln -s ~/.vim/.vimrc ~/.vimrc cd ~/.vim git submodule init git submodule update
Occasionally, I remap built-in mappings, so use with caution, and preferably read "startup/mappings.vim" beforehand to avoid nasty surprises.
Alternatively, you can read and selectively pick stuff for your own configuration, which I highly recommend. A short guide to where you can find most of my customizations follows below. If you're interested in vim plugins I've published, you can find a list on my vim.org profile page.
The "startup" directory is basically my
.vimrc, except separated into
mappings, settings and so on. The borders between a few things are blurry,
though. The reason they're not in
plugin is because it's necessary to either
load them very early or load them in a specific order. Or, they just haven't
made sense to me as "plugins".
The "miniplugins" directory contains small scripts that I don't consider good plugin material, but are useful anyway.
The "wip" directory contains stuff that I'm currently working on. These are probably incomplete experiments that I can't build plugins from just yet. Note that I have a rather loose definition of "currently".
The "nerdtree_plugin" directory is not the stock one that comes with the NERDTree plugin. It contains a few of my own scripts, although I've moved most of the interesting ones to a separate plugin called Andrew's NERDTree.
A lot of interesting things can be found in the "ftplugin" directory. I occasionally build useful stuff for filetypes I use often. These are probably not very generic or redistributable, which is why I tend to put them there.

- The file "autoload/lib.vim" contains (mostly) general-purpose functions I've felt could be useful in various places.
- The file "colors/andrew.vim" is my personal colorscheme, which is a modified elflord.
- The "after" directory may contain some interesting things that had to be placed there for late loading.
