A Simple Plugin for Defining A Background Color for your Vim using Signs
BackgroundColor.vim - A simple Plugin to color your background I) Directory layout ===================== This repository contains the Join.vim plugin, the unit tests and the documentation. The current directory structure looks like this: doc/ plugin/ autoload/ Makefile README The subdirectory doc/ contains the documentation for the plugin. The subdirectory plugin/ contains the Vim plugin and the autoloaded file is located below autoload/ II) Installation =============== Simply put backgroundColor.vim in your plugin directory. (e.g. ~/.vim/plugin/) Create directories, that do not exist currently. III) Documentation ================== BackgroundColor.vim only works, if your vim is compiled with signs-support. If it is, you can use signs, to define a background color for your text. This plugin defines these Commands: :Red Color the selected Range red :White Color the selected Range white :Yellow Color the selected Range yellow :Blue Color the selected Range blue :Green Color the selected range Green :Black Color the selected range Black :Custom1 :Custom2 Color the selected range with your defined Color1 or 2 Those 2 commands are only defined, if you have specified a color for this command. You can define a custom color using the 2 variables g:bg_color_custom1 and g:bg_color_custom2 :Clear Clear the selected range :ClearAll Clear the whole buffer of all background colors. All commands (excep :ClearAll, which only uses the whole buffer) accept a range, on which they operate. So you can use, e.g. :%Red to color the whole buffer red. I am not sure if this is really useful, but in case you find it usefull, please rate this plugin.
