SEARCHANT.VIM IS OBSOLETED BY VIM-SEARCHHI
You should use vim-searchhi instead of searchant.vim. It fixes a bunch of longstanding bugs of searchant.vim and is overall more polished.
Vim plugin for improved search highlighting
When it comes to searching Vim is one of the editors which lacks the feature of highlighting the current search result. Searchant wraps the hacky way to achieve this in Vim into a plugin with a clean interface. Additionally it provides a key mapping to stop the search highlighting.
View the documentation in Vim with
:help searchant or on the web.
- Vim 7.0+
Alternatively you can just drop the
doc folders into your
~/.vim directory. Don't forget to run
:helptags ~/.vim/doc to generate the
help tags after a manual installation.
If you are using incsearch.vim
and you'd like
vim-searchant to play-nicely, you can add the following snippet
to hide the searchant highlight:
" Disable Searchant highlight when incsearch.vim highlights also disable autocmd CursorMoved * call SearchantStop() function SearchantStop() :execute "normal \<Plug>SearchantStop" endfunction
This assumes that you have
let g:incsearch#auto_nohlsearch = 1 in your config.
