A simple small plugin to help you google from vim but not display the results in a buffer. (it's 2013)


I recommend using Tim Pope's pathogen and just install it in the bundle/ dir

You can also just place it in the plugin/ directory.


The shortcut is gs You can google for the word under the cursor in normal mode,

or you can search for selected text in visual mode.

Voogle.vim tries to find an available browser from:

  • Chrome/Chromium
  • Firefox
  • links


Set the g:search_engine variable to your desire for custom searches if you don't like google

You can disable the plugin by let g:loaded_voogle=0.
