scriptease.vim

I make so many Vim plugins I had to make a Vim plugin for making Vim plugins.

Features

  • :PP: Pretty print. With no argument, acts as a REPL.
  • :Runtime: Reload runtime files. Like :runtime!, but it unlets any include guards first.
  • :Disarm: Remove a runtime file's maps, commands, and autocommands, effectively disabling it.
  • :Scriptnames: Load :scriptnames into the quickfix list.
  • :Messages: Load :messages into the quickfix list, with stack trace parsing.
  • :Verbose: Capture the output of a :verbose invocation into the preview window.
  • :Time: Measure how long a command takes.
  • :Breakadd: Like its lowercase cousin, but makes it much easier to set breakpoints inside functions. Also :Breakdel.
  • :Vedit: Edit a file relative the runtime path. For example, :Vedit plugin/scriptease.vim. Also, :Vsplit, :Vtabedit, etc. Extracted from pathogen.vim.
  • K: Look up the :help for the VimL construct under the cursor.
  • zS: Show the active syntax highlighting groups under the cursor.
  • g=: Eval a motion or selection as VimL and replace it with the result. This is handy for doing math, even outside of VimL.
  • Projections for projectionist.vim.

See the :help for details.

Installation

Install using your favorite package manager, or use Vim's built-in package support:

mkdir -p ~/.vim/pack/tpope/start
cd ~/.vim/pack/tpope/start
git clone https://tpope.io/vim/scriptease.git
vim -u NONE -c "helptags scriptease/doc" -c q

Once help tags have been generated, you can view the manual with :help scriptease.
