Loads Vim scripts from isolated directories

branch: master
README.markdown

unbundle.vim

Unbundle activates Vim scripts from isolated directories by adding them to Vim's runtimepath and building missing helptags for documentation therein. For the initiated, it's like pathogen.vim but with ftbundles and less code.

Terminology

bundles are Vim scripts that are stored in isolated directories under bundle/ subdirectories of directories specified in Vim's runtimepath. For example, ~/.vim/bundle/*/ would be your bundles if you were using Unix.

ftbundles are filetype-specific bundles that are loaded lazily (only when they are necessary) to shorten Vim's startup time. For example, ~/.vim/ftbundle/{filetype}/*/ would be your ftbundles for {filetype} if you were using Unix.

Requirements

  • Vim 7 or newer.

Installation

  1. Clone this Git repository or download its contents into a new bundle/vim-unbundle subdirectory inside your Vim runtime directory. For example, ~/.vim/bundle/vim-unbundle would be the correct location in Unix.

    cd ~/.vim/bundle/
    git clone git://github.com/sunaku/vim-unbundle.git
    
  2. Run the following command inside Vim to start using Unbundle immediately, or add it to your vimrc file to start Unbundle whenever you start Vim.

    :runtime bundle/vim-unbundle/unbundle.vim
    
  3. Run the following command inside Vim to learn more about using Unbundle.

    :help unbundle.vim
