Usage

  • Download Waldo.zip and put the .app in your Applications folder
  • Launch Waldo.app to install the Vim plugin
  • Open MacVim.app and trigger Waldo using the <leader>f mapping.

    NOTE: <leader> is a programmable prefix for commands. By default, it's '\' (backslash), though you can change it in your .vimrc file.

NOTE: If you do not have your .vim/ folder in your home directory, you must manually place Waldo.vim (found inside the .app package) in your .vim/plugins directory.

NOTE: Make sure you cd into directory you want to search.
