vimproc

Build Status

vimproc requires a native extension to be built, and will not work properly if that library (a .so or .dll) is missing.

Supported platforms:

  • Windows 32/64bit (Compiled by MinGW or Visual Studio)
  • Mac OS X (10.5 or later)
  • Linux
  • Cygwin
  • Solaris
  • BSD (but cannot check)
  • Android (experimental)

Not supported platforms:

  • Other UNIX platforms

Install

Manual Install

  • Clone this repo
  • Build vimproc's native extensions (see Building for details)
  • Copy autoload/* and plugin/* files to your 'runtimepath' directory (see :help runtimepath).

NeoBundle

If you use neobundle.vim, you can update and build vimproc automatically. This is the recommended package manager.

NeoBundle 'Shougo/vimproc.vim', {
\ 'build' : {
\     'windows' : 'tools\\update-dll-mingw',
\     'cygwin' : 'make -f make_cygwin.mak',
\     'mac' : 'make -f make_mac.mak',
\     'linux' : 'make',
\     'unix' : 'gmake',
\    },
\ }

Pathogen

vimproc uses a pathogen compatible structure, so it can be managed with pathogen, however you must remember to compile after cloning the repo.

git clone https://github.com/Shougo/vimproc.vim.git ~/.vim/bundle/vimproc.vim
cd ~/.vim/bundle/vimproc.vim
make

Building

Note: You must use GNU make to build vimproc.

You can install the dll using |VimProcInstall|. If you are having any trouble or want to build manually then read on.

Linux

$ make

Mac OS X

$ make

Note: If you want to build for multiple architectures, you can use ARCHS and CC variables.

Build for i386 and x86-64:

$ make ARCHS='i386 x86_64'

FreeBSD

$ gmake

Solaris

$ gmake

Note: If you want to use Sun Compiler, you can use SUNCC variable.

$ gmake SUNCC=cc

Windows

Note: In Windows, using MinGW is recommended. Note: If you have not "gcc" binary, you must change $CC value.

Windows using MinGW (32bit Vim):

$ mingw32-make -f make_mingw32.mak

Windows using MinGW (If you want to use MinGW compiler in Cygwin):

$ mingw32-make -f make_mingw32.mak CC=mingw32-gcc

Windows using MinGW (64bit Vim):

$ mingw32-make -f make_mingw64.mak

Windows using Visual Studio (32bit/64bit Vim):

$ nmake -f make_msvc.mak nodebug=1

Note: To build with Visual Studio, you must install Windows SDK and run from VS command prompt. https://github.com/Shougo/vimproc.vim/issues/58

If you use MSVC 11 or later, you need to specify where the Win32.mak file is, e.g.:

$ nmake -f make_msvc.mak nodebug=1 "SDK_INCLUDE_DIR=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1A\Include"

The architecture will be automatically detected, but you can also specify the architecture explicitly. E.g.:

32bit: nmake -f make_msvc.mak nodebug=1 CPU=i386
64bit: nmake -f make_msvc.mak nodebug=1 CPU=AMD64

Cygwin:

$ make -f make_cygwin.mak

Note: The vimproc_cygwin.dll compiled in Cygwin won't work with Windows Vim.

Windows Binaries

Kaoriya Vim comes bundled with a precompiled version for vimproc in Windows environment
