Make the yanked region apparent!

Usage

If you are using Neovim or Vim 8.0.1394 (or later version),

there is no need for configuration, as the highlight event is automatically triggered by the TextYankPost event.

If you are using older Vim,

define a keymapping to <Plug>(highlightedyank). Checking the existence of TextYankPost event would be good.

if !exists('##TextYankPost')
  map y <Plug>(highlightedyank)
endif

Optimizing highlight duration

If you want to optimize highlight duration, use g:highlightedyank_highlight_duration or b:highlightedyank_highlight_duration. Assign a number of time in milliseconds.

let g:highlightedyank_highlight_duration = 1000

A negative number makes the highlight persistent.

let g:highlightedyank_highlight_duration = -1

When a new text is yanked or user starts editing, the old highlighting would be deleted.

Highlight coloring

If the highlight is not visible for some reason, you can redefine the HighlightedyankRegion highlight group like:

highlight HighlightedyankRegion cterm=reverse gui=reverse

Note that the line should be located after :colorscheme command execution in your vimrc.
