Simple vimrc set up using Vundle

Getting started

To get started using this exact repo, clone and make it ~/.vim.

You need to manually install Vundle itself:

$ mkdir -p ~/.vim/bundle
$ git clone ~/.vim/bundle/vundle

Then symlink ~/.vimrc to ~/.vim/vimrc (after moving any existing ~/.vimrc you have to ~/.vim/.)

Start vim and run :PluginInstall to download the bundles from the remote sources. Restart vim to be safe and enjoy the awesomeness.

Notable plugins added

  • CtrlP is kind of like Command-T, but better! I have set to :CtrlPMixed by default, but you can change the g:ctrlp_cmd to :CtrlP for the default operation.
  • I'm currently in trial mode going from PyFlakesVim to Syntastic, partly since Syntastic can also check other languages (notably JS for me).
  • fugitive.vim is a pretty amazing Git wrapper that seems to speed up my git workflow.
  • vim-airline I've switched from using the new powerline to vim-airline since it's pure Vimscript and I've stopped using powerline for my bash prompt.
