Vim sublime

A ready to use minimal Vim (Sublime Text -like) .vimrc configuration

(Play Video)


vim-sublime includes Vundle package manager and some external plugins.

Install Vundle

$ git clone ~/.vim/bundle/Vundle.vim

Install vim-sublime .vimrc

$ curl > $HOME/.vimrc

Then open vim and run


Add the plugin colors

$ cd

$ git clone

$ mv vim-colorschemes/colors/ .vim

$ rm -rf vim-colorschemes

Quit and enter in vim again to apply the changes

You can also add machine specific config to ~/.local.vim

For best results make sure your $TERM env variable is 256 colours; export TERM=xterm-256color

Note: to have the correct font in the bottom bar you need a Powerline font installed and selected in the terminal.

Features included and Shortcuts

The shortcuts should work in vim (terminal with 256 colors) on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows (I'm joking, I don't know).


  • Ctrl + p - Open other files in the folder
  • Ctrl + f - Find text in the document
  • Ctrl + z - Cancel
  • Ctrl + y - Redo
  • F1 - Snippets

Selection - after (Esc + v) or (Shift+ v)

  • Ctrl + c - Copy
  • Ctrl + x - Cut
  • Ctrl + v - Paste
  • Ctrl + m - Comment / Decomment
  • Ctrl + w + <tag> - <tag>Wrap text</tag>
  • Tab - Indent text
  • Tab + Shift - Reindent text

An alternative way to comment is Ctrl + v (Visual-block mode) then Shift+i add the commenting characters (es. //) and press Esc.

To decomment, Ctrl + v, select the part you want to delete at the beginning of the line and press d.


  • Ctrl + t - New tab
  • Ctrl + k - Close tab
  • Ctrl + b - Previous tab
  • Ctrl + n - Next tab

If You use Macvim see also subvim, another Sublime Text for VIM project

You can’t perform that action at this time.
