# This is my git repository for my vim configuration. To use it: 1. clone the repository to ~/.vim 2. symlink your .vimrc to ~/.vim/vimrc with the following command: ln -s ~/.vim/vimrc .vimrc ## Some notes and warnings about my configuration I have commented most settings in the vimrc file ### Swap- and backupfiles My vimrc disables all the swapfiles and backupfiles. Personally I think they are just annoying and vim (almost :)) never crashes so I simply disable them. If you don't trust this, you should remove the corresponding lines from the vimrc. You have been warned :)! ### Pathogen I use Pathogen to manage my plugins. (https://github.com/tpope/vim-pathogen). By default vim plugins are stored all together in the .vim folder. When you start to use more than just a few plugins this quickly becomes a mess and it is nearly impossible to disable or remove a single plugin. With Pathogen you create one folder for every plugin in .vim/bundle. This keeps your .vim-folder nice and clean. ### host-specific vimrc As I use my vim configuration on multiple machines, I like to be able to make small configuration changes for every machine, while still keeping everything together and synced (with git). That's why, at the end of my vimrc, a check is performed to see if a 'host-specific' vimrc can be found. If so, it is also sourced. So if the hostname of your machine is 'andoria', my vimrc checks for ~/.vim/vimrc-andoria. If this file exists it sources it only on that machine, to allow you to set host-specific settings. vim: filetype=vimwiki tw=78 wrap
