Vimmer makes it easy to install, remove and update Vim plugins from the following sources:
N.B. Vimmer is a work in progress. This is an early alpha release for those who are willing to try it and submit feedback. I am offering it with NO GUARANTEES. If you're still with me, please submit your feedback at https://github.com/densitypop/Vimmer/issues. Thank you!
Installing Vimmer is as simple as running:
gem install vimmer
Vimmer depends on the Pathogen plugin for managing Vim's runtime path. Using Pathogen, Vimmer will install plugins into ~/.vim/bundle. Installing a plugin is as simple as running:
vimmer install https://github.com/tpope/vim-fugitive.git
To install a plugin, colorscheme or other script from vim.org use the URL to the script's page. For example:
vimmer install "http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2501"
Restart Vim and you're done! For details on installing Pathogen see Pathogen on Vim.org. Note: I am planning to automatically setup Pathogen during the Vimmer install process.
