Plugin Manage(Vundle)

In this configuration,I use Vundle as plugins manager. Vundle will auto manage the .vim directory,all plugins which has been configured will be downloaded to ~/.vim/bundle/ by default, please keep the .vim directory clean before use it. When Vundle installing plugins git clone operation will be triggered,the search operation need curl .

Project file browser(NERDTree)

In this configuration,I use NERDTree as file browser. The NERDTree allows you to explore your filesystem and to open files and directory. It also allows you to hide files or set bookmarks etc. In NERDTree window input ? can get the operation guide. This configuration filters out .pyc, .git, .hg, .svn etc.


" auto open or close NERDTree
autocmd vimenter * if !argc() | NERDTree | endif
autocmd bufenter * if (winnr("$") == 1 && exists("b:NERDTreeType") && b:NERDTreeType == "primary") | q | endif

" NERDTree -----------------------------

" toggle nerdtree display
map <F3> :NERDTreeToggle<CR>
" open nerdtree with the current file selected
nmap ,t :NERDTreeFind<CR>
" don;t show these file types
let NERDTreeIgnore = ['\.pyc$', '\.pyo$']

Supported operation

shortcut key description
F3 open/close NERDTree
,t open NERDTree and select current file

Syntax checking

In this configuration,I use Syntastic plugin for syntax checking. Support C/C++/Go/Python/Haskell/Ruby/JavaScript etc. For JavaScript, I use eslint as checker, so it can check ES6 and JSX etc. You can see JSLint, JSHint和ESLint的对比及Vim配置 for more details, when you want to change checker tools, just modify a little setting.


" Syntastic ------------------------------

" show list of errors and warnings on the current file
nmap <leader>e :Errors<CR>
" turn to next or previous errors, after open errors list
nmap <leader>n :lnext<CR>
nmap <leader>p :lprevious<CR>
" check also when just opened the file
let g:syntastic_check_on_open = 1
" syntastic checker for javascript.
" eslint is the only tool support JSX.
" If you don't need write JSX, you can use jshint.
" And eslint is slow, but not a hindrance
" let g:syntastic_javascript_checkers = ['jshint']
let g:syntastic_javascript_checkers = ['eslint']
" don't put icons on the sign column (it hides the vcs status icons of signify)
let g:syntastic_enable_signs = 0
" custom icons (enable them if you use a patched font, and enable the previous 
" setting)
let g:syntastic_error_symbol = ''
let g:syntastic_warning_symbol = ''
let g:syntastic_style_error_symbol = ''
let g:syntastic_style_warning_symbol = ''


When you save files, it will check syntax automatically, and display syntax errors.

Supported operations

shortcut key description
\e list syntax errors
\n turn to next error
\p turn to previous error
