Vim

It is recommended that you use gVim in either Windows or Linux and MacVim for
Mac. Download from:

A nice gnome and terminal based option for Debian based distributions is the vim-gnome package:

apt-get install vim-gnome

Usage

Troubleshoot: Because of the large amount of submodules, if you ever have any
trouble after pulling from the repository, it will be easier to just back up
your old .vim folder and just git clone a new version.

Clone this repo into your home directory either as .vim (linux/mac) or
vimfiles (Windows). Such as:

git clone git://github.com/babinho/vimfiles.git ~/.vim

Then ‘cd’ into the repo and run this to get the stuff set up (this works for debian based linux distributions only):

./install.sh

Help Tags

At first usage of vim, type “:” while in command mode and execute:

call pathogen#helptags()

This will make the plugins documentations available upon :help

Dependencies

You will need these dependencies figured out:

  • Ruby (for the fuzzy finder plugin)
  • Exuberant Ctags (http://ctags.sourceforge.net/)
  • Ncurses-term (in Linux only), or better vim-full on some Debian based distros

In Ubuntu, for example, you will have to do:

apt-get install exuberant-ctags ncurses-term

On Windows you have to download Ctags and add ctags.exe in your PATH.

Mac OS X and most Linux distros come with Ruby already. If you’re in Windows
look for Luis Lavena’s latest Ruby Installer (http://rubyforge.org/projects/rubyinstaller/)
