Display |signs| at interesting lines:
- items in the |quickfix| and |location-lists| (e.g. compilation errors)
- |marks| a-zA-Z
- changes (given the file is under a VCS like git, svn, mercurial,
or bazaar -- see |g:tlib#vcs#def| for a list of supported VCSs)
- breakpoints: vim, R (if rer_vim is installed)
- cursor position
- relative line numbers (show numbers only until the cursor moves;
this requires that you add the following command to |vimrc|: >
noremap <silent> <leader><c-l> :call quickfixsigns#RelNumbersOnce()<cr>
- long lines (see |g:quickfixsigns_class_longlines| for details)
< - etc.
Other lists can be configured via the |g:quickfixsigns_lists| variable.
The text attached to a quickfix or location-list entry is displayed in a
balloon via 'balloonexpr'.

If you want nicer looking images instead of the ASCII markers, you have
to change the following signs' definition either in your |vimrc| file or
in $VIMFILES/after/plugin/quickfixsigns.vim (by use of |sign-define|):
QFS_QFL ... Entries in the |quickfix| list
QFS_LOC ... Entries in the |location-list|
QFS_Mark_[a-zA-Z] ... Marks
QFS_CURSOR ... Current cursor position
QFS_BREAKPOINT ... Breakpoints
QFS_REL_x ... Relative line numbers
QFS_VCS_{ADD,DEL,CHANGE} ... VCS changes (see also
Adding new sign classes~
VIM plugin developers can easily define new sign classes:
1. Add the NAME of your sign class to |g:quickfixsigns_classes|
2. Define a variable g:quickfixsigns_class_{NAME} -- a dictionary that
contains at least the following keys: sign, get. See
|g:quickfixsigns_classes| for further details.
On startup any files matching autoload/quickfixsigns/*.vim in the
'runtimepath' are loaded. When the sign class is defined in an |autoload| file,
you should first check whether NAME is included in |g:quickfixsigns_classes|.
See ../autoload/quickfixsigns/breakpoints.vim for a working example.
CAVEAT: If the "get" expression entails running an external program, "event"
should not contain |FocusGained| and |FocusLost| events.
quickfixsigns includes some icons from the open icon library. See for details.
Status: Works for me (there may be some minor quirks)
