Want to use RVM with Vim? You don't need a plugin to do that: Just start Vim from your RVM enabled shell and it will work. But say you started MacVim from Launchpad, or you started Vim with one version of Ruby and now you want another. That's where rvm.vim comes in.

:Rvm 1.9.2

If you want to see the version that was chosen, use use:

:Rvm use default

If you leave off the version, it goes .rvmrc hunting relative to the current buffer.

:Rvm use

If you really want to get crazy, you can make this happen automatically as you switch from buffer to buffer.

:autocmd BufEnter * Rvm

You can also invoke any old rvm command.

:Rvm install 1.9.3

Add %{rvm#statusline()} to 'statusline' (or 'titlestring') to see the current Ruby version at all times.


If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://github.com/tpope/vim-rvm.git

Once help tags have been generated, you can view the manual with :help rvm.


RVM doesn't work in my Vim.

You're using zsh on OS X, aren't you? Move that stupid /etc/zshenv to /etc/zshrc.
