Installation instructions for VimOrganizer v. 0.30, November 2011
=================================================================

1. Install VimOrganizer files as you would any other ftplugin, with downloaded
files going in their respective directories under your .vim (Linux/Mac)
or vimfiles (Windows) directory.

2. Run helptags on the help file in the /doc directory, vimorg.txt,
so help items can be accessed using the Vim help system.

3. Make sure your vimrc has these lines:
-------------------------------------
    filetype plugin indent on

    [...and then somewhere below that:]

    au! BufRead,BufWrite,BufWritePost,BufNewFile *.org
    au BufEnter *.org call org#SetOrgFileType()
------------------------------------

If you use VimOrganizer much you will also want to configure variables
and/or functions in your vimrc. A sample vimrc has been included
in the download.

ALSO, you will want to install the plugins listed below. VimOrganizer
will work without them, but some functionality will be unavailable:

4. Make sure you have Calendar.vim installed.
    (Calendar.vim comes included in the /plugin/ directory as part of
    the Vim runtime in some Vim installs, otherwise available at:
    http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=52)

Second, here are two plugins that you will want to download to
take advantage of Org-mode-like narrowing and link features that have been built
into VimOrganizer:

5. Christian Brabandt's NarrowRegion plugin. Find and install it from here:
    http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=3075
6. The Utl "Universal Text Linking" plugin. Find and install it from here:
    http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=293

If you are running on Windows another plugin will be useful:

7. If you're running on Windows then you may want to get Peter Rodding's
    shell.vim plugin. It's not necessary, but if you have installed
    it VimOrganizer will use it to ensure that you don't see
    the annoying Windows command prompt window pop up when VimOrganizer
    calls out to Emacs/Org-mode.
    http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=3123

8. FINALLY, install Emacs. Not necessary for basic outlining, agenda
searches, and other basic stuff, but it is necessary to do exports
to html and PDF (which you will definitely want) as well as other
advanced stuff. Don't be afraid, install is simply and configuration
is not hard. Find Emacs here:
http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/

Vimorg uses a variable, g:org_command_for_emacsclient, to hold the
command that will start the emacsclient on your system. If you are
not on Linux or OSX you will need to set this explicitly in your
vimrc file.

Also, please note that emacsclient works slightly differently on
Windows and Linux/OSX systems. You must manually start
Emacs on Linux/OSX or calls to emacsclient will not work. Please see
:h vimorg-emacs-setup

For Emacs you should also install a hook function in the .emacs file,
which will automatically make minor conversions when you export and/or
open a VimOrganizer .org file in Emacs. You can find the text for that
function in the VimOrganizer help file:
:h vimorg-orgmode-conversion

If you're scared of Emacs, don't worry. You don't ever need to edit
a document using Emacs. The most you will need to do is open up
the .emacs configuration file (in Vim) to make some configuration
changes, and that is required only if you're doing more advanced stuff.
Having said, that, if there are problems it can sometimes be easiest to
open Emacs and diagnose an issue there. Still, you don't ever need
to edit a document in Emacs, just think of Emacs as your "application
server".
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
