Vim Stack - The Mephux Collection.


I want a good quality vim setup that does not depend on ruby, perl or python. Just pure old vimscript for easy deployment to whatever box I am currently using. (i.e it will fallback gracefully)

VimStack by default is mostly setup for work in ruby, javascript, html, css, go and c. However, adding plugins to extend it for whatever tools you need is trivial.

Vimux comes with two color schemas: epix and mephux. Both color schemas were created by me modified from ir_black ( The default color schema is mephux.


  • make install
  • vim +BundleInstall +qall # install all default plugins

For NerdTree file icons (devicons) see


NOTE: The default <Leader> is set to \

  • ctrl + p - fuzzy file finder via ctrlp (
  • <Leader>b - ctrlp buffer search
  • <Leader>f - ctrlp function search
  • <Leader>r - ctrlp register search
  • <c-f> - search via Ack ( - brew install ack or sudo apt-get install ack-grep)
  • <Leader>o - git commit viewer via vim-extradite (
  • <Leader>q - quickfix
  • <Leader>w - write file
  • shift+s" - surround selected char/word with ""

  • goT: like got for the current "session" directory
  • etc...
  • Too many to list here. See vimrc


  • Invoke html completion with ctrl + e using emmet-vim (

  • Example

    • div#hello followed by ctrl + e = <div id="hello"></div>
    • followed by ctrl + e = <div class="word"></div>
    • etc..


make uninstall or make clean


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request


  • I need to clean up the vimrc - it's a crazy mess but it's solid.
