Added vim-airline bundle to Vundle
Added support for Powerline Fonts for vim-airline
Updated vim-airline information
Removed ctrl+6 information
Removed dependency to PowerLine fonts
Now supporting vim-airline buffers
Removed instructions that were not related to vim-airline
I'm definitely interested in this (and would use it myself). My concern is that it might be too opinionated/different from stock vim. Thoughts?
I must say that you might have a point here. It would be preferred to:
I know how to do the latter but I do not know how to fix the first. There is a command available for this inside vim; AirlineToggle, maybe that can be used? Any thoughts or input appreciated.
Having a statusline plugin that's disabled by default would be a bit weird, but if that's needed to get this merged I'd be happy to add a check. The tabline extension is already disabled by default. Cheers.
I suppose that this all boils down to what the core contributors would like to see. I'm using airline and would be happy to have it turned on by default. If the "impact" is to big having it enabled by default, it would be sufficient to write instructions on how to enable it via ~/.vimrc.local.
It would be great if you could add that functionality @bling.
Ping @rudle @strongriley.
well, the default would be to have it enabled of course (i can't break it for all existing users), with the option to have it disabled.
this means that the default vimrc in maximum-awesome will have a enabled=0, and then the vimrc.local would need a enabled=1 to override it....which seems a bit messy....
Yea, it's a sliding scale - there's nothing that inherently may make a plugin non-standard. The way I'm trying to think about it is: would a novice to vim coming from the IDE world expect this?
@eventualbuddha @rudle I think we need to clarify maximum awesome's goals and non-goals so we can balance opinionated customization, ease of use, etc.
I have written a blog post about how to do this without the pull request, it can be found here: http://sebastiandahlgren.se/2014/08/07/running-vim-airline-with-maximum-awesome/
Thanks for sharing @sebdah. I guess we never reached consensus on how opinionated maximum awesome should be. Glad you were able to customize. That's why the .vimrc.local and .vimrc.bundles.local files exist 😄
Most vim newcomers I've helped to transition have benefited from airline with hidden set and the buffer bar enabled, with a few leader mappings for next/prev/close buffer. Though, you can achieve much of the same functionality with ctrlp buffer search.
Closing this as stale.
