This is a vimscript for create and manage memo. memolist.vim is inspired by jekyll.vim.


Set the path to your memo directory in your .vimrc.(default directory $HOME/memo)

let g:memolist_path = "path/to/dir"

You may also want to add a few mappings to stream line the behavior:

nnoremap <Leader>mn  :MemoNew<CR>
nnoremap <Leader>ml  :MemoList<CR>
nnoremap <Leader>mg  :MemoGrep<CR>
