Intro

Riv is a vim plugin for taking notes with reStructuredText.

https://github.com/Rykka/github_things/raw/master/image/rst_quick_start.gif

riv.vim (vim) + InstantRst (web server) + rhythm.css (theme)

Comparion

First things first.

As there are some other note plugins in vim. like vimwiki, vim-notes, VOoM etc.

Also org-mode if you are Emacs fan.

Why using this plugin?

In comparition, the most advantage of Riv.vim is reStructuredText support.

reStructuredText is a markup language.

It's syntax are markdown alike, but more powerful and extensible, table, LaTex ect. are supported.

It's widely used in python community. And have many relevent plugins. Sphinx (www.readthedocs.org) Pygments, Nikola, etc.

The bug tracker for Riv is at https://github.com/Rykka/riv.vim/issues. You can use it to report bugs and open feature requests. Discussions related to Riv are welcome too.

You can follow my twitter @rykkaf and notice me there too.

Common Issues

  • If you get errors with folding in documents, you can try to force reload using :RivReload or <C-E>t`.

    Or just :w as it will auto refolding after saving.

  • Windows:

    • Converting to other formats may fail.

      This could happen due to Docutils not working correctly with vimrun.exe.

  • Mac OS:

    • Lists don't act as expected.

      This could happen if the <C-Enter> key could not be mapped. Try some other mapping instead.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
