This is a full featured yet fast vim configuration. It doesn't do any processing unless you ask. The keymapping aggregates commands from various plugins into logical groups, as documented below.

You can read more about the design and ideas behind this Vim config.

Installation / Upgrading

One command does it all.

curl -o - | sh

Don't worry, it will back up your existing vim configuration.


These dotfiles organize commands into logical groups to help you remember them.
