This is my .vimrc (or rather _vimrc) configuration. it has some very windows (tested on xp, vista, win7) specific settings. Also tested on OSX
It uses Vundler to manage plugings which I think is an improvement above Pathogen or VAM. You can read about it here: http://www.charlietanksley.net/philtex/sane-vim-plugin-management/
The vundler set up guide is at:
You only need to do the git and curl on windows step, you do not need to clone the Vundler repo, since it is provided as a git submodule.
I recommend using console2 http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/ for commandline usage.
- 1) git - http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/
- 2) ctags - http://ctags.sourceforge.net/
- 3) Perl and Ack for Ack.vim (if you don't need it, you don't need to install perl or ack) - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1023710/how-can-i-install-and-use-ack-library-on-windows
- 4) Python for ultisnips
First clone the repo and submodule update:
cd %userprofile% git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:aalvarado/aa-vim.git git submodule update
Create symlinks (in a command cmd.exe window)
mklink /D .vim aa-vim\.vim mklink _vimrc aa-vim\_vimrc
for windows xp you can use fsutil and create a hardlink http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/fsutil.mspx
Open up vim and type:
This will download all and install the plugins specified in the _vimrc file.
Restart vim after every install so you can use your newly installed plugins
