vimper is yet another vim plugins configuration manager.
As with usual Python package, simply run:
$ pip install vimper
Once vimper is installed just run:
$ vimper update
This would backup existing vim files installation and create links to the vimper lair's repository. Vimper lair is simple repository that contains very simple vim + pathogen setup + some basic .vimrc and .gvimrc configs.
Want an one liner?
git clone git://github.com/lukaszb/vimper.git ~/.vimper && cd ~/.vimper && python bootstrap.py
You may want to configure some parts of your vim, i.e. default background style or directory path where nerd tree should open by default. Guess what? It's extremely easy to accomplish!
There are 4 files that might be created for that:
- .vimrc.before - configuration file loaded before vimper's .vimrc
- .vimrc.local - confiuration file loaded after vimper's .vimrc
- .gvimrc.before - as above but for gui vim
- .gvimrc.local - as above but for gui vim
So, let's say you want to change default NERDTree path and set background style to light:
$ cat - > .gvimrc.before set bg=light let GUI_NERDTREE_DEFAULT_PATH="~/develop/workspace/"
It needs to be .gvimrc.before as GUI_NERDTREE_DEFAULT_PATH is checked during .gvimrc configuration.
