Vim plugins and settings that will ease writing Drupal code in Vim. Other than Drupal, these settings will also help you writing PHP and JavaScript. The settings will also work in graphical Vim (recommended).


1. cd
2. mv ~/.vim ~/.vim-bak // If you have vim settings. Else, proceed to next step
3. git clone ~/.vim
4. git clone ~/.vim/bundle/Vundle.vim
5. cp ~/.vim/vimrc ~/.vimrc
6. cp ~/.vim/gvimrc ~/.gvimrc // If you have graphical vim installed
7. mkdir ~/.vimsessions
8. mkdir ~/vimtmp
9. `sudo apt-get install exuberant-ctags` // Install exuberant-ctags on Ubuntu/Debian
10. `brew install ctags` // Install exuberant-ctags on OSX (Make sure you have [Homebrew]( installed)
11. vim +BundleInstall +qall

And you are good to go!
