Usage

Troubleshoot: Because of the large amount of submodules, if you ever have any
trouble after pulling from the repository, it will be easier to just back up
your old .vim folder and just git clone a new version.

Clone this repo into your home directory either as .vim (linux/mac) or
vimfiles (Windows). Such as:


git clone git://github.com/lfilho/vimfiles.git ~/.vim

Then ‘cd’ into the repo and run this to get the snippets submodule:


git submodule update --init

Now you should create a new .vimrc file in your home directory that
loads the pre-configured one that comes bundled in this package. You can do it
on Linux/Mac like this:


echo "source ~/.vim/vimrc" > ~/.vimrc

On Windows you should create a _vimrc (underline instead of dot) and add
the following line inside:


source ~/vimfiles/vimrc

This way you can override the default configuration by adding your own inside
this file.

You should also create a new .gvimrc file in your home directory. You can do
it on Linux/Mac like this:


echo "source ~/.vim/gvimrc" > ~/.gvimrc

On Windows you should create a _gvimrc (underline instead of dot) and add
the following line inside:


source ~/vimfiles/gvimrc

This way you can override the default GUI configuration by adding your own inside
this file.

Help Tags

At first usage of vim, type “:” while in command mode and execute:

call pathogen#helptags()

This will make the plugins documentations available upon :help

Dependencies

You will need these dependencies figured out:

In Ubuntu, for example, you will have to do:


apt-get install exuberant-ctags ncurses-term curl

In OS X, you can install ctags with homebrew


brew install ctags

On Windows you have to download Ctags and add ctags.exe in your PATH.
