vim-stencil

Overview

VIM plugin to load templates from a directory and do basic variable substitution.

Installation

If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://github.com/mrtazz/vim-stencil.git

Usage

Set the path where to find the templates like this: let g:StencilTemplatepath = "~/.vim/templates/"

Then you can load templates with the :Stencil command. It supports tab completion for choosing the template. The template loader will always load the template after the first line of the file.

Variable expansion

Stencil supports expansion of some simple variables. Those are:

  • %%DATE%% will be replaced by the current date in the format mm/dd/yyyy
  • %%WEEKDAY%% will be replaced by the full name of the weekday (e.g. Friday)
