Powerline for vim

Author: Kim Silkebækken (
Version: β


Powerline is a utility plugin which allows you to create better-looking, more functional vim statuslines. See the screenshots below for a demonstration of the plugin's capabilities.

Please see doc/Powerline.txt for instructions on how to enable and configure the plugin.

Note: You need a patched font to be able to use the symbols in the statusbar. An experimental Python/fontforge-based font patcher is included in fontpatcher/fontpatcher.


The screenshot album is also available on imgur.
