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


  • :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.
  • :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. It's so handy, in fact, that it probably deserves its own plugin.
  • Projections for projectionist.vim.

See the :help for details.


If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://

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


See the contribution guidelines for pathogen.vim.
