Get your author on

Write.vim helps you turn vim into not just a code editor, but an editor for plain text (novels, stories, papers, articles, etc.).

This plugin provides the commands :WriteOn, :WriteOff, and :Write. It's recommended that you add your own mappings to trigger these commands, such as:

noremap <leader>w :WriteOn
noremap <leader>W :WriteOff


noremap <leader>w :Write

to toggle writer mode. Statusline hooks are also provided. See doc/write.txt for details.

You can use the 'g:write_auto' setting to mark a list of filetypes that go into write mode automatically.
