  1. Install vim-vimhelplint

    • Copy ftplugin/help_lint.vim to your ~/.vim/ftplugin/help_lint.vim.
    • Or you can use your favorite plugin manager (Vundle, Neobundle, vim-plug).
    " Vundle
    Plugin 'machakann/vim-vimhelplint'
    " Neobundle
    NeoBundle 'machakann/vim-vimhelplint'
    " vim-plug
    Plug 'machakann/vim-vimhelplint'
