A practical Vim configuration

Configuration

Setup basic configs

To set up the config, do the following (on your home directory):

  ln -s 'path_to_where_you_cloned_the_repo' .vim/
  ln -s .vim/vimrc .vimrc
  ln -s .vim/gvimrc .gvimrc (for gui configuration)

Setup Vundle

We are now using Vundle to manage the plugins \o/.

The first time you clone this repo you will also need to clone the vundle plugin (from you home folder):

  git clone https://github.com/gmarik/vundle.git .vim/bundle/vundle

Then you need to tell vundle to install the plugins:

  vim +BundleInstall +qall

or from inside Vim:

  :BundleInstall

Extras

If you want to use the fancy status bar on the Mac (it is on by default on the Mac) you will also need to install the Menlo-Powerline font on the extra/ folder. Font from: https://gist.github.com/1595572

Shortcuts (fairly outdated list, I will update them soon)

The majority of shortcuts are made to use with Rails development. So far this is done by default, but the intent of this config if to be flexible and so there will be a way to define which shortcuts to create depending on what is being used.

  • AutoComplete

    <Control-Shift-Space> : opens the autocomplete menu

  • NerdTree

    <F2> : open the NERDTree windows (drawer)

  • Search/Open OUDATED

    <Alt/Option-Shift-f> : search for a file (it is possible to filter the search) <Alt/Option-Shift-o> : show the open files (buffers). The last viewed file is selected and you can also filter the result <Alt/Option-Shift-t> c : search for a tag in the current buffer <Alt/Option-Shift-t> a : search for a tag in all open buffers <Alt/Option-Shift-t> w : search for the word under the cursor as a tag in current buffer <Alt/Option-Shift-t> W : search for the word under the cursor as a tag in all open buffers <Alt/Option-Shift-t> s : search for the selection as a tag in current buffer <Alt/Option-Shift-t> S : search for the selection as a tag in all open buffers
