Vim plugin to get answers from Stack Overflow. Inspired by SO-Eclipse-Plugin.


Anything inputted after the command becomes the 'question' that will be answered from Stack Overflow, provided that answers exist. Answers will be shown in a separate buffer.



StackAnswers should work with any modern plugin manager for Vim, such as NeoBundle, Pathogen, Vim-Plug, or Vundle.


StackAnswers uses an external python module to parse data. You can install it via:

sudo apt-get install pip
pip install requests
pip install beautifulsoup4
pip install html5lib


If you have something you would like to contribute, feel free to open up a pull request with a short summary of what exactly you are adding/fixing.

Thanks to all the people who contributed to the project!.
