README.rst Add note about terminal/graphical vim. Aug 3, 2011



writer.vim is a plugin to help you write prose in vim. It will give you a bigger font, change it to Monaco, set the text widths to 3 alphabets (75 characters), increase the linespacing, turn off line numbers and the status bar.

Inspired by the amazing IA Writer for Mac/iPad.



cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://


Run :WriterToggle to toggle the writing settings.

Note: the plugin doesn't work in terminal vim. Please use MacVim, gVim and the like.

Contributing and feedback

All feedback and contributions are most welcome. This is my first vim plugin, so be nice :).
