vim-googurl

Description

A vim plugin to easily create Markdown links from a Google query. I wrote this script because I used to toggle back and forth between vim and my web browser when inserting links into text.

Install

Just drop the file googurl.vim into your ~/.vim/plugin directory. vim-googurl needs ruby support compiled in vim, and the following gems:

  • json

Use

The plugin will define a FindUrls command. Put your cursor over a word, call :FindUrls and you will be offered a set of choices drawn from Google.

For instance, suppose that you want to link to Github, put the word Github under your cursor, and invoke :FindUrls. You will be prompted to choose the URL among several Google matches. Make a choice, and the link will appear as [Github](https://github.com/) in your markdown file.

You may also query urls for the current visual selection by pressing 'u'.
