I recently removed and reorganized redundant settings and plugins, and put it on another repository


My personal Vim configurations and some plugins which I used in my daily job.

I put Vim related settings in plugin/settings/Settings.vim, and isolate other plugins' settings in plugin/settings directory.

You may notice that there are several vimrc files:

  1. vimrc, standard version vimrc.

  2. easy-vimrc, same as vimrc, but add some easier key mapping for new Vimer.

  3. pro-vimrc, same as vimrc, but remove the arrow keys mapping.

  4. experimental-vimrc, same as pro-vimrc, but just for experimental purpose.

you can link your ~/.vimrc to any one of them as you wish :)

It's how my Vim looks now:


and Here are some screenshots on the other platforms.


Installation and Requisites:

Automatic installer... (DO YOU TRUST ME?)

If you already install git in your machine, and you trust me and my automatic install shell script, you can install my vimrc via curl or wget, just copy one of the following line and paste in terminal:

  1. via curl:

sh <(curl -L

  1. or via wget:

sh <(wget --no-check-certificate -O -)

Manual installation

  1. BACKUP your .vim directory and .vimrc first.(IMPORTANT!)

  2. cd ~ to change directory to your home directory.

  3. copy files to your home directory:

     git clone git://
  4. cd to eddie-vim directory and execute the to get latest version modules:

     cd eddie-vim
  5. make a symbolic link .vim to eddie-vim that you just cloned, or just rename it to .vim also be fine:

     ln -s eddie-vim .vim
  6. link the vimrc to

     ln -s .vim/vimrc .vimrc
  7. if you're still not familiar with the movement in vim by HJKL or yanking and pasting text, I've made a easier version:

     ln -s .vim/easy-vimrc .vimrc
  8. if you use GUI version VIM, such as MacVim or GVim, you can also link to .gvimrc:

     ln -s eddie-vim/gvimrc .gvimrc
  9. if you use Airline under Ubuntu or something which can not show the correct icons/fonts on the bottom, you can check this link, patch the font and it should look pretty nice.

  10. you may need to install ack or silver searcher first if you use ack.vim.


change directory to ~/.vim and execute ./ script, it should do all the updates automatically.

Features and Key Mappings:

  1. Resize splited windows automatically, so that you get a bigger editing room if you're working with a smaller screen. (stole from Gary Bernhardt)

  2. Toggle between working mode and presentation mode by <leader>z, but only work in GUI version Vim. You can check here to see how it looks like. (stole from Mike Skalnik)

  3. some usually used key mappings in normal mode:

    a. <F2> to toggle NERDTree on and off.

    b. <F3> to search Buffer with CtrlP plugin.

    c. <F4> to toggle Taglist window.

    d. <F5> is the script runner, according to it's filetype, it will run Ruby(.rb) ,Python(.py) or Javascript(.js) file(SpiderMonkey is needed), even CoffeeScript(.coffee, but you may have to install CoffeeScript first). If the filetype is VimScript, <F5> will run :source % for you.

    e. <F7> to switch to previous tab, and <F8> to the next tab.

    f. hit <ctrl>p will launch a quick window to match keywords from your current working directory, not only file name, but also path name. And <ctrl>w u will match from your MRU(Mostly Recent Used) files, which is also frequently used.

    g. hit <leader> twice to toggle comment on and off.

    h. <tab> and <shift><tab> to increase and decrease the syntax identation.

    i. <leader>v to open .vimrc in a new tab.

    j. <leader>0 to edit or create in current working directory.

  4. Remove tailing whitespace automatically while saving.


if you can not found ctags command, just find your ctags path and replace my settings in plugin/settings/Ctags.vim file:

let Tlist_Ctags_Cmd = '/your/path/to/ctags'

and Exuberant Ctags is recommended.


Enjoy it, and if there's any question or comment, feel free to let me know :)
