Vim Requirements

Plugin Requirements

Here's a list of plugins that require further installation or have dependencies.


  • Typing jk insert mode is equivalent to Escape.
  • Pressing enter in normal mode saves the current buffer.

And many more. See mappings.vim and vundle_plugins for more.

Installing Custom Plugins

Create a new .vim file with the same name as the plugin you'd like to install in vundle_plugins/custom. Then add the installation block. For example:


if exists('g:vundle_installing_plugins')
  Plugin 'matze/vim-move.vim'

let g:move_key_modifier = 'C'

This example installs vim-move.
