Plugin managers

As of version 8.0 Vim supports packages. Clone this repository inside ~/.vim/pack/all/start:

git clone https://github.com/LnL7/vim-nix.git ~/.vim/pack/all/start/vim-nix

The most common plugin managers include vim-plug, NeoBundle, Vundle and pathogen.vim.

With pathogen.vim, just clone this repository inside ~/.vim/bundle:

Plugin 'LnL7/vim-nix'
