EditorConfig Vim Plugin

Build Status

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


If your Vim is not compiled with +python feature (You can verify if the +python feature is included by running :ver. Most Linux distributions and with the official Windows binary have the +python feature enabled), 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.

To install this plugin, you can use either of the following ways:

  • Download the archive and extract it into your Vim runtime directory (~/.vim on UNIX/Linux and $VIM_INSTALLATION_FOLDER\vimfiles on windows).

  • Use pathogen (the git repository of this plugin is

  • Use Vundle by adding to your .vimrc Vundle plugins section:

    Plugin 'editorconfig/editorconfig-vim'

    Then remember to call :PluginInstall.

Supported properties

The EditorConfig Vim plugin supports the following EditorConfig properties:

  • indent_style
  • indent_size
  • tab_width
  • end_of_line
  • charset
  • insert_final_newline (Feature +fixendofline (available on Vim 7.4.785+) or PreserveNoEOL is required for this property)
  • trim_trailing_whitespace
  • max_line_length
  • root (only used by EditorConfig core)

Recommended Options

All of the options which are supported are documented in [editorConfig.txt][] and can be viewed by executing the following: :help editorconfig.

Excluded patterns.

To ensure that this plugin works well with Tim Pope's fugitive, use the following patterns array:

let g:EditorConfig_exclude_patterns = ['fugitive://.*']

If you wanted to avoid loading EditorConfig for any remote files over ssh:

let g:EditorConfig_exclude_patterns = ['scp://.*']

Of course these two items could be combined into the following:

let g:EditorConfig_exclude_patterns = ['fugitive://.*', 'scp://.*']

Exec Path

The file path to the EditorConfig core executable. You could set this value in your |vimrc| like this:

let g:EditorConfig_exec_path = 'Path to your EditorConfig Core executable'
