EditorConfig Vim Plugin

Build Status

This is an EditorConfig plugin for Vim. This plugin could be found on both GitHub and Vim online.


There are two ways for installation:

  • If your Vim is compiled with +python feature (this is usually true on most Linux distributions and with the main Windows binary installers), the most simple way to install this plugin is to download the archive and extract it into your Vim runtime directory (~/.vim on UNIX/Linux and $VIM_INSTALLATION_FOLDER\vimfiles on windows). You can verify if the +python feature is included by running :ver.

  • If your Vim is not compiled with +python feature, please first download the EditorConfig core and follow the instructions in the README and INSTALL files to install it. This plugin would NOT work if neither +python nor EditorConfig core is available.

Supported properties

The EditorConfig Vim plugin supports the following EditorConfig properties:

  • indent_style
  • indent_size
  • tab_width
  • end_of_line
  • charset
  • insert_final_newline (PreserveNoEOL is required for this property)
  • trim_trailing_whitespace
  • max_line_length
  • root (only used by EditorConfig core)
