use VIM as great as Netbeans for editing PHP, Python, JS, HTML, XML and many else filetype.

This have several great feature :

  • Supported with NodeJS, Stylus, Less and many CSS/Javascript engine, template, parser
  • Integrated with JavascriptLint for auto-checking syntax
  • Have great Python checking and fast shortcut like Shift - e for execute current files
  • Use Vundle for managing plugins
  • F8 for Browser files and Tags
  • Check .vimrc to see many feature and goodies bag

This VIM is inspired by many great developers that share their custom VIM configuration.


Go to your Command / Terminal :

cd ~/
git clone 
ln -s ~/vim-netbeans/.vimrc ~/.vimrc
ln -s ~/vim-netbeans/.vim ~/.vim
git clone ~/.vim/bundle/vundle
vim ~/.vimrc 

When opening .vimrc, do ":BundleInstall" to install all package and exit by :wq.

rm -rf ~/.vim/bundle/snipmate.vim/snippets

Change your TAB behaviour between PyDiction and Snipmate by follow this link :

But i prefer using CTRL+Space as Snipmate Completion. Here a how to make it :

vim ~/.vim/bundle/snipmate.vim/after/plugin/snipMate.vim

Edit start from line 15 :

"ino <silent> <tab> <c-r>=TriggerSnippet()<cr>
"snor <silent> <tab> <esc>i<right><c-r>=TriggerSnippet()<cr>
ino <silent> <C-Space> <c-r>=TriggerSnippet()<cr>
snor <silent> <C-Space> <esc>i<right><c-r>=TriggerSnippet()<CR>


After do installing, you should go to VIM and do :BundleInstall. I use Vundle here which i use pathogen in the past development.

I use nodejs-snipmate and snipmate-snippets. To preventing crash between default snippets in Snipmate and others,

delete ~/.vim/bundle/snipmate.vim/snippets.

A. Python Debugger like pyflakes, pylint and pep8

For installing Python debugger using PIP :

sudo apt-get install python-pip
sudo pip install git+git://
sudo pip install pylint
sudo pip install pep8

Read .vimrc for magic keys and guide.

B. Ctags

If you using Ubuntu, then can do this command :

sudo apt-get install exuberant-ctags

C. JavascriptLint

This is powerfull Javascript syntax checker with quickfix.

Configuration for jsl.conf located in ~/.vim/jsl.conf.

Tips: You can change warning into '-ambiguous_newline' for disable newline checking (Jquery).

Follow this link for installation guide :

For *.js file, auto-checker work automatically after saving file.

For another filetype ( .php, .py, .rb, etc), you can press SHIFT+j for Javascript checker.

C. Installing JSLint, Gjslint, JSHint

See my blog post here for installation :

Installing JSlint, Jshint, Gjslint, Cssbeauty and many else

E. Colorscheme

This VIM using Mustang as Colorscheme. If you use Yakuake for running VIM, then you should change your Yakuke for running 256-colors.

Here are to set it :


For using this custom VIM, here are some clue :

  1. Use Backspace as PageUp & Space as PageDown in normal mode
  2. Use tab (insert mode) for autocomplete Python using PyDiction
  3. Autocomplete every you type. Also you can use CTRL + Space for Snipmate Autocompletion
  4. Move to another tab / buffer using CTRL+Arrow
  5. Using NERDTree by :NERDTree or editing .vimrc to enable NERDTree automatically.
  6. Using F2 or t for FuzzFinder in Full Path or b for open Buffers
  7. Press F8 for enabling NERDTRee and Tagbar (Love it!)
  8. Use `<leader> space for MRU
  9. Use Shift+e for execute Python code
  10. Use Shift+n for execute NodeJS code
  11. Use Shift+j for checking javascript syntax in current file
  12. Also check many goodies bag in .vimrc


I'm using VIM and Netbeans for building many application on PHP, Javascript, NodeJS, Ruby and Python
