Small tool to automate running a custom command repeatedly (in vim) during development.
The command can be customized on a per-repository (or per-directory) basis.
Symlink or move
zing to some place in your PATH, such as ~/bin. I also
symlink it as ~/bin/,z for reasons which will be made obvious shortly.
Add the following rules to your .vimrc:
" Note: Add <C-O> if you'd prefer for vim to stay in insert mode after " running the zing script " if you prefer F4 nnoremap <F4> :call Zing()<CR> inoremap <F4> <C-C>:call Zing()<CR> " if you prefer a leader let mapleader = "," noremap <silent> <Leader>z :call Zing()<CR> inoremap <silent> <Leader>z <C-C>:call Zing()<CR> func! Zing() exec "w" exec "!zing" endfunc
Ignoring with git globally
I ignore the
.zing files in all repositories by adding the following to
[core] excludesfile = /home/jewel/.gitignore_global
And the following content in
.zing file anywhere you'd like. It's contents should be a script
that will be ran whenever
,z is pressed. As your project progresses or you
need want to focus on a specific area, change the contents of
