OHAI!

This is my Vim/MacVim setup. I used several editors and IDEs in the past, but
Vim has some pretty interesting features that you can't find anywhere else,
such as:

- Portability. Every OS I've ever heard of has some version of Vim available.

- It's FAST, even with tons of plugins installed (take that Emacs and Textmate!).

- Let's face it: geek cred.

Yeah, it can be a little hard to get up to speed with it, but vimtutor helps a
lot. In a few minutes you'll be hjkl-ing your way through documents, deleting
lines with dd and cw-ing mistakes before the inevitable :w. Good times.

This setup includes several interesting plugins to make your life easier. Want
a list? there you go:

EasyGrep - Easy filesystem grepping goodness
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2438

NERDTree - A cool file tree explorer split
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1658

SearchComplete - Tab completion on searches
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=474

NERDCommenter - Easy commenting/uncommenting
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1218

FuzzyFinder - Open files easily, TextMate style.
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1984

Fugitive - Git plugin
http://github.com/tpope/vim-fugitive

Rails - Self-explanatory
http://github.com/tpope/vim-rails

Surround - Tag surrounding goodness
http://github.com/tpope/vim-surround

vim-cucumber - Cucumber test suite addons
http://github.com/tpope/vim-cucumber

(Yeah, Tim Pope rules -- you should follow him on Github.)

All of them work on plain Vim, meaning that you won't need to have MacVim (or
even a mac!) to use this setup. In fact all my MacVim specific configs are
inside an 'if' statement in vimrc, so you really don't need to worry about it.

I also included additional Python, Wikipedia and Markdown syntax files for your
cheerful and colorful enjoyment.

To use this on Mac/Linux, just donwload/clone/copy it somewhere and either
rename or link the files appropriately (vim/ -> ~/.vim and vimrc -> ~/.vimrc).
This should work on Windows too, but seriously dude: why?

Have fun!
