Rating: the vim.org ratings are fairly useless. Need something more like
http://ruby-toolbox.com/, something that can pit related plugins against each
How would the rating be computed? The ruby toolbox heuristic of github watchers & forks doesn't work so well with vim-scripts... not until we're working with the original repos anyway, just just the mirrors on vim-scripts.
vundle and vim-update-bundles could submit usage counts every time they process a vimrc. With the user's consent of course. :)
This is a great idea! Some thoughts:
@moshen agree, definitely #1. We need to make vim-scripts keep track of original repos before we can do #2, that's a tough problem.
Node just announced http://toolbox.no.de/ . Vim needs an entry in this fight!
The number of clones is not available via Github's API.
In order to reach some state like RubyToolbox there are a few other issues which we would need to think about:
I think the main problem here is that vim-scripts is not a directory of all vim-scripts available but a mirror.
It's nice to have this mirror for scripts which do not comply with pathogen but its not a replacement for a complete listing like these toolbox sites provide it.
I am willing to work on this directory.
Ideally I'd like to see someone join me to stay motivated on the long run... ;-)
