Spacevim - Spacemacs for vim Build Status

This project is not actively maintained anymore. There are other projects doing similar things.

Spacevim is Spacemacs for vim. It can be used as a full distribution or you can get only the Spacemacs key bindings

Spacevim provides 2 ways of using it. First you can use it as a vim distribution like Spacemacs. Or you can only install it as a set of key bindings and Spacevim will bring out the best of your currently installed plugin.

Distribution mode

You want a full vim distribution like Spacemacs provides for emacs. Execute this line of shell, it will download a default .vimrc and install plugins through vim.

curl -sSfL -o ~/.vimrc && vim

After plugins installation restart vim.

Key bindings only mode

You already have a vim config and/or want to manage your plugins yourself. This mode will provide only Spacemacs key bindings and adapt Spacevim with currently installed plugins. Install Spacevim as usual:

  • Pathogen
    • git clone ~/.vim/bundle/spacevim
    • Remember to run :Helptags to generate help tags
  • NeoBundle
    • NeoBundle 'ctjhoa/spacevim'
  • Vundle
    • Plugin 'ctjhoa/spacevim'
  • Plug
    • Plug 'ctjhoa/spacevim'
  • manual
    • copy all of the files into your ~/.vim directory


see details


  • Load plugin in async
  • Support spacemacs 0.200.X
  • Better documentation
  • OO programming (as suggested here)
