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.

It is recommended to install this plugin using a plugin manager like pathogen.vim, Vundle.vim or vim-plug.

Alternatively you can just drop the plugin and doc folders into your ~/.vim directory. Don't forget to run :helptags ~/.vim/doc to generate the help tags after a manual installation.
