Erlang + Rebar plugin for vim


For quick goto from function call to it declaration you can use <localleader>d or you can set up own mapping:

autocmd FileType erlang nnoremap <silent> <buffer>
	\ <F6> :call revim#goto#Define(g:global_call)<CR>

There is 2 type of function call: global (whith module name) and local. Local function call always open in current buffer. For global call you can specified how to process move to declaration. Exists 3 type of goto:

  • 0 = in same buffer (move cursor, if declaration in other file, than first open it)
  • 1 = in split window (split window and in new window goto declaration)
  • 2 = in new tab (open new tab and goto declaration)


  • Goto local function in same buffer and global function in new tab (default)

    let g:global_call = 2

Goto smart enjoy to not open new window for already opened file. It simple go to that buffer and move cursor to function declaration.
