Simple Vim templates plugin

Author: Adrian Perez <aperez@igalia.com>

This is a simple plugin for Vim that will allow you to have a set of templates for certain file types. It is useful to add boilerplate code like guards in C/C++ headers, or license disclaimers.

Installation

The easiest way to install the plugin is to install it as a bundle. For example, using Pathogen:

  1. Get and install pathogen.vim. You can skip this step if you already have it installed.
  2. cd ~/.vim/bundle
  3. git clone git://github.com/aperezdc/vim-template.git

Bundle installs are known to work fine also when using Vundle. Other bundle managers are expected to work as well.

Important

If you use Fish as your shell, you will need to add set shell=/bin/sh to your ~/.vimrc — the plugin relies on the setting pointing to a Bourne-compatible shell.

Documentation

The documentation can be browsed directly in Vim:

:help template.txt

Alternatively, you can also read it in your browser.

Updating

Manually

In order to update the plugin, go to its bundle directory and use Git to update it:

  1. cd ~/.vim/bundle/vim-template
  2. git pull

With Vundle

Use the :BundleUpdate command provided by Vundle, for example invoking Vim like this:

% vim +BundleUpdate
You can’t perform that action at this time.
