Maximum Awesome

Config files for vim and tmux, lovingly tended by a small subculture of peace-loving hippies. Built for Mac OS X.

What's in it?


  • ,d brings up NERDTree, a sidebar buffer for navigating and manipulating files
  • ,t brings up Command-T, a project file filter for easily opening specific files
  • ,b restricts Command-T to open buffers
  • ,a starts project search with ack.vim using ag (like ack)
  • ds/cs delete/change surrounding characters (e.g. "Hey!" + ds" = Hey!, "Hey!" + cs"' = 'Hey!') with vim-surround
  • \\\ toggles current line comment
  • \\ toggles visual selection comment lines
  • vii/vai visually select in or around the cursor's indent
  • ,[space] strips trailing whitespace
  • ^] jump to definition using ctags
  • ,l begins aligning lines on a string, usually used as ,l= to align assignments
  • ^hjkl move between windows, shorthand for ^w hjkl


  • ^a is the prefix
  • mouse scroll initiates tmux scroll
  • prefix v makes a vertical split
  • prefix s makes a horizontal split




If you have trouble compiling the Command-T C extension, check mkmf.log in the current directory; you may need to use xcode-select(1).
