Octocat-spinner-32 plugin
Octocat-spinner-32 VERSION

No longer supported!

MacVim now supports using your RVM ruby, making this plugin somewhat redundant. For the few remaining features you might want I'd recommend using Tim Pope's excellent rvm.vim.


Until MacVim supports RVM I've written this quick little plugin that provides a Ruby command.

Everything gets routed to the rvm directory in your $HOME folder. It doesn't support alternate rvm directories!


Using submodules

cd ~/.vim
git submodule add git:// vim/bundle/rvm_ruby.vim


You can use the more traditional installation methods. Just dump the rvm_ruby.vim file in to plugin.


Pick a version of Ruby and open a Ruby file in MacVim:

rvm use 1.9.2-p0
mvim script.rb

Use the Ruby ex command:

:Ruby -v

And you'll get some nice output:

ruby 1.9.2p0 (2010-08-18 revision 29036) [x86_64-darwin10.4.0]
