The Developer

  • Avoids hit-or-miss, time-consuming, manual, repetitious runs of :split/:vsplit, and thought-sinks about how to produce an intended window structure

  • Avoids losing current configurations due to mid-session reloads of backed-up Vim sessions that have preferred window structures

  • Avoids loss of focus from these discontinuities


This plugin is structured for deployment in a pathogen-managed bundle directory.

If pathogen is not installed, copy the the files in the tabwins subdirs to the same subdirs in ~/.vim.
