Linux/Unix Installation

You run the following commands to make the dotvim effective:

git clone git://github.com/schnell18/dotvim.git ~/.vim
cd ~/.vim
git submodule init
git submodule update

If you are using git 1.6.5 or above, you can simplify above steps in one go:

git clone --recurse-submodules git://github.com/schnell18/dotvim.git ~/.vim

If you come across SSL certificate verification error, you may work around this issue by turning off the verification temporarily:

export GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true

Then you create a symbol link to the .vim/vimrc file:

ln -s ~/.vim/vimrc ~/.vimrc

Windows Installation

Windows installation is similar except that you clone the project into vimfiles sub directory instead of .vim and copy the vimrc file into _vimrc instead of soft-linking to .vimrc under your home directory. Here are the commands relevant to Windows for your convenience:

cd c:\Users\xxx
git clone --recurse-submodules git://github.com/schnell18/dotvim.git vimfiles
copy vimfiles\vimrc _vimrc

The vimrc on Windows uses a patched free Inconsolata font for powerline , you may download it from here.
