==============================================================================
1. Intro *vimwiki-intro*
Vimwiki is a personal wiki for Vim -- a number of linked text files that have
their own syntax highlighting.
With Vimwiki you can:
- organize notes and ideas
- manage todo-lists
- write documentation
- maintain a diary
- export everything to HTML
To do a quick start press <Leader>ww (this is usually \ww) to go to your index
wiki file. By default it is located in ~/vimwiki/index.wiki
Feed it with the following example:
= My knowledge base =
* Tasks -- things to be done _yesterday_!!!
* Project Gutenberg -- good books are power.
* Scratchpad -- various temporary stuff.
Place your cursor on 'Tasks' and press Enter to create a link. Once pressed,
'Tasks' will become '[[Tasks]]' -- a Vimwiki link. Press Enter again to
open it. Edit the file, save it, and then press Backspace to jump back to
your index.
A Vimwiki link can be constructed from more than one word. Just visually
select the words to be linked and press Enter. Try it with 'Project
Gutenberg'. The result should look something like:
= My knowledge base =
* [[Tasks]] -- things to be done _yesterday_!!!
* [[Project Gutenberg]] -- good books are power.
* Scratchpad -- various temporary stuff.
==============================================================================
2. Prerequisites *vimwiki-prerequisites*
Make sure you have these settings in your vimrc file: >
set nocompatible
filetype plugin on
syntax on
Without them Vimwiki will not work properly.

3.2. Local mappings
To remap one of these keys, either put it in your .vimrc like this >
:nmap <Leader>wc <Plug>Vimwiki2HTML
or, the better way, put it in a file .vim/ftplugin/vimwiki.vim like this >
:nmap <silent><buffer> <Leader>wc <Plug>Vimwiki2HTML
The latter has the advantage that the mapping is local to viwiki buffers in
every case.
Also note that some keys work in normal mode as well as in visual mode. If you
remap them using :map, they will also run in operator-pending mode. If you
don't want that, use >
:nmap <Leader>tt <Plug>VimwikiToggleListItem
:vmap <Leader>tt <Plug>VimwikiToggleListItem

==============================================================================
5. Wiki syntax *vimwiki-syntax*
There are a lot of different wikis out there. Most of them have their own
syntax and Vimwiki is not an exception here.
Vimwiki has evolved its own syntax that closely resembles Google's wiki
markup. This syntax is described in detail below.
Vimwiki also supports alternative syntaxes, like Markdown and MediaWiki, to
varying degrees; see |vimwiki-option-syntax|. Static elements like headers,
quotations, and lists are customized in syntax/vimwiki_xxx.vim, where xxx
stands for the chosen syntax.
Interactive elements such as links and Vimwiki commands are supported by
definitions and routines in syntax/vimwiki_xxx_custom.vim and
autoload/vimwiki/xxx_base.vim. Currently, only Markdown includes this level
of support.
Vimwiki2HTML is currently functional only for the default syntax.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.1. Typefaces *vimwiki-syntax-typefaces*
There are a few typefaces that give you a bit of control over how your text
is decorated: >
*bold text*
_italic text_
~~strikeout text~~
`code (no syntax) text`
super^script^
sub,,script,,
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2. Links *vimwiki-syntax-links*
Wikilinks~
Plain link: >
[[This is a link]]
With description: >
[[This is a link source|Description of the link]]
Wiki files don't need to be in the root directory of your wiki, you can put
them in subdirectories as well: >
[[projects/Important Project 1]]
To jump from that file back to the index file, use this link: >
[[../index]]
or: >
[[/index]]
The latter works because wiki links starting with "/" are considered to be
absolute to the wiki root directory, that is, the link [[/index]] always opens
the file /path/to/your/wiki/index.wiki, no matter in which subdirectory you
are currently in.
Links to subdirectories inside the wiki directory are also supported. They
end with a "/": >
[[a subdirectory/|Other files]]
Use |g:vimwiki_dir_link| to control the behavior when opening directories.
Typing wikilinks can be simplified by using Vim's omni completion (see
|compl-omni|) like so: >
[[ind<C-X><C-O>
which opens up a popup menu with all the wiki files starting with "ind".
When |vimwiki-option-maxhi| equals 1, a distinct highlighting style is used to
identify wikilinks whose targets are not found.
Interwiki:~
If you maintain more than one wiki, you can create interwiki links between
them by adding a numbered prefix "wikiX:" in front of a link: >
[[wiki1:This is a link]]
or: >
[[wiki1:This is a link source|Description of the link]]
The number behind "wiki" is in the range 0..N-1 and identifies the destination
wiki in |g:vimwiki_list|.
Diary:~
The "diary:" scheme is used to concisely link to diary entries: >
[[diary:2012-03-05]]
This scheme precludes explicit inclusion of |vimwiki-option-diary_rel_path|,
and is most useful on subwiki pages to avoid links such as: >
[[../../diary/2012-03-05]]
Anchors~
A wikilink, interwiki link or diary link can be followed by a '#' and the name
of an anchor. When opening a link, the cursor jumps to the anchor. >
[[Todo List#Tomorrow|Tasks for tomorrow]]
To jump inside the current wiki file you can omit the file: >
[[#Tomorrow]]
See |vimwiki-anchors| for how to set an anchor.
Raw URLs~
Raw URLs are also supported: >
https://github.com/vimwiki/vimwiki.git
mailto:habamax@gmail.com
ftp://vim.org
External files~
The "file:" and "local:" schemes allow you to directly link to arbitray
resources using absolute or relative paths: >
[[file:/home/somebody/a/b/c/music.mp3]]
[[file:C:/Users/somebody/d/e/f/music.mp3]]
[[file:~/a/b/c/music.mp3]]
[[file:../assets/data.csv|Important Data]]
[[local:C:/Users/somebody/d/e/f/music.mp3]]
[[file:/home/user/documents/|Link to a directory]]
These links are opened with the system command, i.e. !xdg-open (Linux), !open
(Mac), or !start (Windows). To customize this behavior, see
|VimwikiLinkHandler|.
In Vim, "file:" and "local:" behave the same, i.e. you can use them with both
relative and absolute links. When converted to HTML, however, "file:" links
will become absolute links, while "local:" links become relative to the HTML
output directory. The latter can be useful if you copy your HTML files to
another computer.
To customize the HTML conversion of links, see |VimwikiLinkConverter|.
Transclusion (Wiki-Include) Links~
Links that use "{{" and "}}" delimiters signify content that is to be
included into the HTML output, rather than referenced via hyperlink.
Wiki-include URLs may use any of the supported schemes, may be absolute or
relative, and need not end with an extension.
The primary purpose for wiki-include links is to include images.
Transclude from a local URL: >
{{file:../../images/vimwiki_logo.png}}
or from a universal URL: >
{{http://vimwiki.googlecode.com/hg/images/vimwiki_logo.png}}
Transclude image with alternate text: >
{{http://vimwiki.googlecode.com/hg/images/vimwiki_logo.png|Vimwiki}}
in HTML: >
<img src="http://vimwiki.googlecode.com/hg/images/vimwiki_logo.png"
alt="Vimwiki"/>
Transclude image with alternate text and some style: >
{{http://.../vimwiki_logo.png|cool stuff|style="width:150px;height:120px;"}}
in HTML: >
<img src="http://vimwiki.googlecode.com/hg/images/vimwiki_logo.png"
alt="cool stuff" style="width:150px; height:120px"/>
Transclude image _without_ alternate text and with a CSS class: >
{{http://.../vimwiki_logo.png||class="center flow blabla"}}
in HTML: >
<img src="http://vimwiki.googlecode.com/hg/images/vimwiki_logo.png"
alt="" class="center flow blabla"/>
A trial feature allows you to supply your own handler for wiki-include links.
See |VimwikiWikiIncludeHandler|.
Thumbnail links~
>
Thumbnail links are constructed like this: >
[[http://someaddr.com/bigpicture.jpg|{{http://someaddr.com/thumbnail.jpg}}]]
in HTML: >
<a href="http://someaddr.com/ ... /.jpg">
<img src="http://../thumbnail.jpg /></a>
Markdown Links~
These links are only available for Markdown syntax. See
http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax#link.
Inline link: >
[Looks like this](URL)
Image link: >
![Looks like this](URL)
The URL can be anything recognized by Vimwiki as a raw URL.
Reference-style links: >
a) [Link Name][Id]
b) [Id][], using the "implicit link name" shortcut
Reference style links must always include two consecutive pairs of
[-brackets, and field entries can not use "[" or "]".
NOTE: (in Vimwiki's current implementation) Reference-style links are a hybrid
of Vimwiki's default "Wikilink" and the tradition reference-style link.
If the Id is defined elsewhere in the source, as per the Markdown standard: >
[Id]: URL
then the URL is opened with the system default handler. Otherwise, Vimwiki
treats the reference-style link as a Wikilink, interpreting the Id field as a
wiki page name.
Highlighting of existing links when |vimwiki-option-maxhi| is activated
identifies links whose Id field is not defined, either as a reference-link or
as a wiki page.
To scan the page for new or changed definitions for reference-links, simply
re-open the page ":e<CR>".
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.3. Headers *vimwiki-syntax-headers*
= Header level 1 =~
By default all headers are highlighted using |hl-Title| highlight group.
== Header level 2 ==~
You can set up different colors for each header level: >
:hi VimwikiHeader1 guifg=#FF0000
:hi VimwikiHeader2 guifg=#00FF00
:hi VimwikiHeader3 guifg=#0000FF
:hi VimwikiHeader4 guifg=#FF00FF
:hi VimwikiHeader5 guifg=#00FFFF
:hi VimwikiHeader6 guifg=#FFFF00
Set up colors for all 6 header levels or none at all.
=== Header level 3 ===~
==== Header level 4 ====~
===== Header level 5 =====~
====== Header level 6 ======~
You can center your headers in HTML by placing spaces before the first '=':
= Centered Header L1 =~
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.4. Paragraphs *vimwiki-syntax-paragraphs*
A paragraph is a group of lines starting in column 1 (no indentation).
Paragraphs are separated by a blank line:
This is first paragraph
with two lines.
This is a second paragraph with
two lines.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.5. Lists *vimwiki-syntax-lists*
Unordered lists: >
- Bulleted list item 1
- Bulleted list item 2
or: >
* Bulleted list item 1
* Bulleted list item 2
Ordered lists: >
1. Numbered list item 1
2. Numbered list item 2
3. Numbered list item 3
or: >
1) Numbered list item 1
2) Numbered list item 2
3) Numbered list item 3
or: >
a) Numbered list item 1
b) Numbered list item 2
c) Numbered list item 3
or: >
A) Numbered list item 1
B) Numbered list item 2
C) Numbered list item 3
or: >
i) Numbered list item 1
ii) Numbered list item 2
iii) Numbered list item 3
or: >
I) Numbered list item 1
II) Numbered list item 2
III) Numbered list item 3
or: >
# Bulleted list item 1
# the # become numbers when converted to HTML
Note that a space after the list item symbols (-, *, 1. etc.) is essential.
You can nest and mix the various types: >
- Bulleted list item 1
- Bulleted list item 2
a) Numbered list sub item 1
b) more ...
* and more ...
* ...
c) Numbered list sub item 3
1. Numbered list sub sub item 1
2. Numbered list sub sub item 2
d) etc.
- Bulleted list item 3
List items can span multiple lines: >
* Item 1
Item 1 continued line.
Item 1 next continued line.
* Item 2
- Sub item 1
Sub item 1 continued line.
Sub item 1 next continued line.
- Sub item 2
- etc.
Continuation of Item 2
Next continuation of Item 2
Definition lists: >
Term 1:: Definition 1
Term 2::
:: Definition 2
:: Definition 3
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.6. Tables *vimwiki-syntax-tables*
Tables are created by entering the content of each cell separated by |
delimiters. You can insert other inline wiki syntax in table cells, including
typeface formatting and links.
For example: >
| Year | Temperature (low) | Temperature (high) |
|------|-------------------|--------------------|
| 1900 | -10 | 25 |
| 1910 | -15 | 30 |
| 1920 | -10 | 32 |
| 1930 | _N/A_ | _N/A_ |
| 1940 | -2 | 40 |
>
In HTML the following part >
| Year | Temperature (low) | Temperature (high) |
|------|-------------------|--------------------|
>
is highlighted as a table header.
If you indent a table then it will be centered in HTML.
If you put > in a cell, the cell spans the left column.
If you put \/ in a cell, the cell spans the above row.
For example: >
| a | b | c | d |
| \/ | e | > | f |
| \/ | \/ | > | g |
| h | > | > | > |
>
See |vimwiki-tables| for more details on how to manage tables.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.7. Preformatted text *vimwiki-syntax-preformatted*
Use {{{ and }}} to define a block of preformatted text:
{{{ >
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?
}}}
You can add optional information after the {{{: >
{{{class="brush: python" >
def hello(world):
for x in range(10):
print("Hello {0} number {1}".format(world, x))
}}}
Result of HTML export: >
<pre class="brush: python">
def hello(world):
for x in range(10):
print("Hello {0} number {1}".format(world, x))
</pre>
This might be useful for coloring program code with external JS tools
such as Google's syntax highlighter.
You can setup Vimwiki to highlight code snippets in preformatted text.
See |vimwiki-option-nested_syntaxes|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.8. Mathematical formulae *vimwiki-syntax-math*
Mathematical formulae are highlighted, and can be rendered in HTML using the
powerful open source display engine MathJax (http://www.mathjax.org/).
There are three supported syntaxes, which are inline, block display and
block environment.
Inline math is for short formulae within text. It is enclosed by single
dollar signs, e.g.:
$ \sum_i a_i^2 = 1 $
Block display creates a centered formula with some spacing before and after
it. It must start with a line including only {{$, then an arbitrary number
of mathematical text are allowed, and it must end with a line including only
}}$.
E.g.:
{{$
\sum_i a_i^2
=
1
}}$
Note: no matter how many lines are used in the text file, the HTML will
compress it to one line only.
Block environment is similar to block display, but is able to use specific
LaTeX environments, such as 'align'. The syntax is the same as for block
display, except for the first line which is {{$%environment%.
E.g.:
{{$%align%
\sum_i a_i^2 &= 1 + 1 \\
&= 2.
}}$
Similar compression rules for the HTML page hold (as MathJax interprets the
LaTeX code).
Note: the highlighting in Vim is automatic. For the rendering in HTML, you
have two alternative options:
1. using the MathJax server for rendering (needs internet connection).
Add to your HTML template the following line:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML"></script>
2. installing MathJax locally (faster, no internet required). Choose a
folder on your hard drive and save MathJax in it. Then add to your HTML
template the following line:
<script type="text/javascript" src="<mathjax_folder>/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML"></script>
where <mathjax_folder> is the folder on your HD, as a relative path to the
template folder. For instance, a sensible folder structure could be:
- wiki
- text
- html
- templates
- mathjax
In this case, <mathjax_folder> would be "../mathjax" (without quotes).
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.9. Blockquotes *vimwiki-syntax-blockquotes*
Text which starts with 4 or more spaces is a blockquote.
This would be a blockquote in Vimwiki. It is not highlighted in Vim but
could be styled by CSS in HTML. Blockquotes are usually used to quote a
long piece of text from another source.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.10. Comments *vimwiki-syntax-comments*
A line that starts with %% is a comment.
E.g.: >
%% this text would not be in HTML
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.11. Horizontal line *vimwiki-syntax-hr*
4 or more dashes at the start of the line is a horizontal line (<hr />): >
----
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.12. Tags *vimwiki-syntax-tags*
You can tag a wiki file, a header or an arbitrary place in a wiki file. Then,
you can use Vim's built-in tag search functionality (see |tagsrch.txt|) or
Vimwiki's tag related commands to quickly jump to all occurrences of the tag.
A tag is a sequence of non-space characters between two colons: >
:tag-example:
<
It is allowed to concatenate multiple tags in one line: >
:tag-one:tag-two:
<
If placed in the first two lines of a file, the whole file is tagged. If
placed under a header, within the 2 lines below it, the header is then tagged
with this tag, and the tag search commands will jump to this specific header.
Otherwise, the tag stands of its own and the search command jumps directly to
it.
Typing tags can be simplified by using Vim's omni completion (see
|compl-omni|) like so: >
:ind<C-X><C-O>
which opens up a popup menu with all tags defined in the wiki starting with
"ind".
Tags are also treated as |vimwiki-anchors| (similar to bold text).
Note that tag search/jump/completion commands need certain metadata saved in
the wiki folder. This metadata file can be manually updated by running
|:VimwikiRebuildTags|. When the option |vimwiki-option-auto_tags| is enabled,
the tags metadata will be auto-updated on each page save.
Tags-related commands and options:
* |:VimwikiRebuildTags|
* |:VimwikiGenerateTags|
* |:VimwikiSearchTags|
* |vimwiki-option-auto_tags|
==============================================================================
6. Folding/Outline *vimwiki-folding*
Vimwiki can fold or outline sections using headers and preformatted blocks.
Alternatively, one can fold list subitems instead.
Example for list folding:
= My current task =
* [ ] Do stuff 1
* [ ] Do substuff 1.1
* [ ] Do substuff 1.2
* [ ] Do substuff 1.2.1
* [ ] Do substuff 1.2.2
* [ ] Do substuff 1.3
* [ ] Do stuff 2
* [ ] Do stuff 3
Hit |zM| :
= My current task = [8] --------------------------------------~
Hit |zr| :
= My current task =~
* [ ] Do stuff 1 [5] --------------------------------------~
* [ ] Do stuff 2~
* [ ] Do stuff 3~
Hit |zr| one more time:
= My current task =~
* [ ] Do stuff 1~
* [ ] Do substuff 1.1~
* [ ] Do substuff 1.2 [2] -------------------------------~
* [ ] Do substuff 1.3~
* [ ] Do stuff 2~
* [ ] Do stuff 3~
Note: If you use the default Vimwiki syntax, folding on list items will work
properly only if all of them are indented using the current 'shiftwidth'.
For MediaWiki, * or # should be in the first column.
To turn folding on/off check |g:vimwiki_folding|.
==============================================================================
7. Placeholders *vimwiki-placeholders*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
%title Title of the page *vimwiki-title*
When you htmlize your wiki page, the default title is the filename of the
page. Place >
%title My books
into your wiki page if you want another title.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
%nohtml *vimwiki-nohtml*
If you do not want a wiki page to be converted to HTML, place:
%nohtml
into it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
%template *vimwiki-template*
To apply a concrete HTML template to a wiki page, place:
%template name
into it.
See |vimwiki-option-template_path| for details.
==============================================================================
8. Lists *vimwiki-lists*
While writing lists, the keys <CR>, o and O insert new bullets or numbers as
you would expect it. A new bullet/number is inserted if and only if the cursor
is in a list item. To make a list item with more than one line, press <S-CR>
or press <CR> and <C-L><C-M>.
Note that the mapping <S-CR> is not available in all terminals.
Furthermore, <CR> and <S-CR> behave differently when the cursor is behind an
empty list item. See the table below.
You can configure the behavior of <CR> and of <S-CR> like this: >
inoremap <CR> <Esc>:VimwikiReturn 1 5<CR>
inoremap <S-CR> <Esc>:VimwikiReturn 2 2<CR>
The first argument of the command :VimwikiReturn is a number that specifies
when to insert a new bullet/number and when not, depending on whether the
cursor is in a list item or in a normal line: >
Number │ Before │ After
======================================
1 │ 1. item| │ 1. item
│ │ 2. |
│–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ← default for <CR>
│ 1. item │ 1. item
│ continue| │ continue
│ │ |
======================================
2 │ 1. item| │ 1. item
│ │ |
│–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ← default for <S-CR>
│ 1. item │ 1. item
│ continue| │ continue
│ │ 2. |
======================================
3 │ 1. item| │ 1. item
│ │ 2. |
│––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
│ 1. item │ 1. item
│ continue| │ continue
│ │ 2. |
======================================
4 │ 1. item| │ 1. item
│ │ |
│––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
│ 1. item │ 1. item
│ continue| │ continue
│ │ |
<
The second argument is a number that specifies what should happen when you
press <CR> or <S-CR> behind an empty list item. There are no less than five
possibilities:
>
Number │ Before │ After
======================================
1 │ 1. | │ 1.
│ │ 2. |
======================================
2 │ 1. | │ ← default for <S-CR>
│ │ 1. |
======================================
3 │ 1. | │ |
│ │
======================================
4 │ 1. | │
│ │ |
======================================
5 │ 1. | │ 1. |
│ │
│–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ← default for <CR>
│ 1. | │ |
│ │
<
*vimwiki-list-manipulation*
The level of a list item is determined by its indentation (default and
Markdown syntax) or by the number of list symbols (MediaWiki syntax).
Use gll and glh in normal mode to increase or decrease the level of a list
item. The symbols are adjusted automatically to the list items around it.
Use gLl and gLh to increase or decrease the level of a list item plus all
list items of lower level below it, that is, all child items.
Use <C-T> and <C-D> to change the level of a list item in insert mode.
See |vimwiki_gll|, |vimwiki_gLl|, |vimwiki_glh|, |vimwiki_gLh|,
|vimwiki_i_<C-T>|, |vimwiki_i_<C-D>|
Use gl followed by the desired symbol to change the symbol of a list item or
create one. Type gL and the symbol to change all items of the current list.
For default syntax, the following types are available: >
- hyphen
* asterisk
# hash
1. number with period
1) number with parenthesis
a) lower-case letter with parenthesis
A) upper-case letter with parenthesis
i) lower-case Roman numerals with parenthesis
I) upper-case Roman numerals with parenthesis
Markdown syntax has the following types: >
- hyphen
* asterisk
+ plus
1. number with period
MediaWiki syntax only has: >
* asterisk
# hash
In insert mode, use the keys <C-L><C-J> and <C-L><C-K> to switch between
symbols. For convenience, only the commonly used symbols can be reached
through these keys for default syntax.
Note that such a list: a) b) c) … only goes up to zz), to avoid confusion with
normal text followed by a parenthesis.
Roman numerals go up to MMMM) and numbers up to 2147483647. or
9223372036854775807. depending if your Vim is 32 or 64 bit.
Also note that you can, of course, mix different list symbols in one list, but
if you have the strange idea of putting a list with Romanian numerals right
after a list using letters or vice versa, Vimwiki will get confused because
it cannot distinguish which is which (at least if the types are both upper
case or both lower case).
See |vimwiki_glstar|, |vimwiki_gl#| |vimwiki_gl-|, |vimwiki_gl-|,
|vimwiki_gl1|, |vimwiki_gla|, |vimwiki_glA|, |vimwiki_gli|, |vimwiki_glI|
Use glr and gLr, if the numbers of a numbered list are mixed up. See
|vimwiki_glr| and |vimwiki_gLr|.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Todo lists *vimwiki-todo-lists*
You can have todo lists -- lists of items you can check/uncheck.
Consider the following example: >
= Toggleable list of todo items =
* [X] Toggle list item on/off.
* [X] Simple toggling between [ ] and [X].
* [X] All list's subitems should be toggled on/off appropriately.
* [X] Toggle child subitems only if current line is list item
* [X] Parent list item should be toggled depending on it's child items.
* [X] Make numbered list items toggleable too
* [X] Add highlighting to list item boxes
* [X] Add [ ] to the next list item created with o, O and <CR>.
Pressing <C-Space> on the first list item will toggle it and all of its child
items: >
= Toggleable list of todo items =
* [ ] Toggle list item on/off.
* [ ] Simple toggling between [ ] and [X].
* [ ] All of a list's subitems should be toggled on/off appropriately.
* [ ] Toggle child subitems only if the current line is a list item.
* [ ] Parent list item should be toggled depending on their child items.
* [X] Make numbered list items toggleable too.
* [X] Add highlighting to list item boxes.
* [X] Add [ ] to the next list item created using o, O or <CR>.
Pressing <C-Space> on the third list item will toggle it and adjust all of its
parent items: >
= Toggleable list of todo items =
* [.] Toggle list item on/off.
* [ ] Simple toggling between [ ] and [X].
* [X] All of a list's subitems should be toggled on/off appropriately.
* [ ] Toggle child subitems only if current line is list item.
* [ ] Parent list item should be toggled depending on it's child items.
* [ ] Make numbered list items toggleable too.
* [ ] Add highlighting to list item boxes.
* [ ] Add [ ] to the next list item created using o, O or <CR>.
Parent items should change when their child items change. If not, use
|vimwiki_glr|. The symbol between [ ] depends on the percentage of toggled
child items (see also |g:vimwiki_listsyms|): >
[ ] -- 0%
[.] -- 1-33%
[o] -- 34-66%
[O] -- 67-99%
[X] -- 100%
It is possible to toggle several list items using visual mode. But note that
instead of toggling every item individually, all items get checked if the
first item is unchecked and all items get unchecked if the first item is
checked.
Use gl<Space> (see |vimwiki_gl<Space>|) to remove a single checkbox and
gL<Space> (see |vimwiki_gL<Space>|) to remove all checkboxes of the list the
cursor is in.
==============================================================================
9. Tables *vimwiki-tables*
Use the :VimwikiTable command to create a default table with 5 columns and 2
rows: >
| | | | | |
|---|---|---|---|---|
| | | | | |
<
Tables are auto-formattable. Let's add some text into first cell: >
| First Name | | | | |
|---|---|---|---|---|
| | | | | |
<
Whenever you press <TAB>, <CR> or leave Insert mode, the table is formatted: >
| First Name | | | | |
|------------|---|---|---|---|
| | | | | |
<
You can easily create nice-looking text tables, just press <TAB> and enter new
values: >
| First Name | Last Name | Age | City | e-mail |
|------------|------------|-----|----------|----------------------|
| Vladislav | Pokrishkin | 31 | Moscow | vlad_pok@smail.com |
| James | Esfandiary | 27 | Istanbul | esfandiary@tmail.com |
<
To indent table indent the first row. Then format it with 'gqq'.
==============================================================================
10. Diary *vimwiki-diary*
The diary helps you make daily notes. You can easily add information into
Vimwiki that should be sorted out later. Just hit <Leader>w<Leader>w to create
a new note for today with a name based on the current date.
To generate the diary section with all available links one can use
|:VimwikiDiaryGenerateLinks| or <Leader>w<Leader>i .
Note: it works only for diary index file.
Example of diary section: >
= Diary =
== 2011 ==
=== December ===
* [[2011-12-09]]
* [[2011-12-08]]
See |g:vimwiki_diary_months| if you would like to rename months.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Calendar integration *vimwiki-calendar*
If you have Calendar.vim installed you can use it to create diary notes.
Just open calendar with :Calendar and tap <Enter> on the date. A wiki file
will be created in the default wiki's diary.
Get it from http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=52
See |g:vimwiki_use_calendar| option to turn it off/on.
==============================================================================
12. Anchors *vimwiki-anchors*
Every header, tag, and bold text can be used as an anchor. To jump to it, use
a wikilink of the form >
[[file#anchor]]
For example, consider the following file "Todo.wiki": >
= My tasks =
:todo-lists:
== Home ==
- [ ] bathe my dog
== Work ==
- [ ] beg for *pay rise*
== Knitting club ==
=== Knitting projects ===
- [ ] a *funny pig*
- [ ] a *scary dog*
Then, to jump from your index.wiki directly to your knitting projects, use: >
[[Todo#Knitting projects]]
Or, to jump to an individual project, use this link: >
[[Todo#funny pig]]
Or, to jump to a tag, use this link: >
[[Todo#todo-lists]]
If there are multiple instances of an anchor, you can use the long form which
consists of the complete header hierarchy, separated by '#': >

If you don't feel like typing the whole stuff, type just [[Todo# and then
|i_CTRL-X_CTRL-O| to start the omni completion of anchors.
For jumping inside a single file, you can omit the file in the link: >
[[#pay rise]]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Table of Contents *vimwiki-toc* *vimwiki-table-of-contents*
You can create a "table of contents" at the top of your wiki file.
The commando |:VimwikiTOC| creates the magic header >
= Contents =
in the current file and below it a list of all the headers in this file as
links, so you can directly jump to specific parts of the file.
For the indentation of the list, the value of |vimwiki-option-list_margin| is
used.
If you don't want the TOC to sit in the very first line, e.g. because you have
a modeline there, put the magic header in the second or third line and run
:VimwikiTOC to update the TOC.
If English is not your preferred language, set the option
|g:vimwiki_toc_header| to your favorite translation.
If you want to keep the TOC up to date automatically, use the option
|vimwiki-option-auto_toc|.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tagbar integration *vimwiki-tagbar*
As an alternative to the Table of Contents, you can use the Tagbar plugin
(http://majutsushi.github.io/tagbar/) to show the headers of your wiki files
in a side pane.
Download the Python script from
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vimwiki/utils/master/vwtags.py and follow
the instructions in it.
==============================================================================
12. Options *vimwiki-options*
There are global options and local (per-wiki) options available to tune
Vimwiki.
Global options are configured via global variables. For a complete list of
them, see |vimwiki-global-options|.
Local options for multiple independent wikis are stored in a single global
variable |g:vimwiki_list|. The per-wiki options can be registered in advance,
as described in |vimwiki-register-wiki|, or may be registered on the fly as
described in |vimwiki-temporary-wiki|. For a list of per-wiki options, see
|vimwiki-local-options|.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12.1 Registered Wiki *g:vimwiki_list* *vimwiki-register-wiki*
One or more wikis can be registered using the |g:vimwiki_list| variable.
Each item in |g:vimwiki_list| is a |Dictionary| that holds all customizations
available for a distinct wiki. The options dictionary has the form: >
{'option1': 'value1', 'option2': 'value2', ...}
Consider the following: >
let g:vimwiki_list = [{'path': '~/my_site/', 'path_html': '~/public_html/'}]
This defines one wiki located at ~/my_site/. When converted to HTML, the
produced HTML files go to ~/public_html/ .
Another example: >
let g:vimwiki_list = [{'path': '~/my_site/', 'path_html': '~/public_html/'},
\ {'path': '~/my_docs/', 'ext': '.mdox'}]
defines two wikis: the first as before, and the second one located in
~/my_docs/, with files that have the .mdox extension.
An empty |Dictionary| in g:vimwiki_list is the wiki with default options: >
let g:vimwiki_list = [{},
\ {'path': '~/my_docs/', 'ext': '.mdox'}]
For clarity, in your .vimrc file you can define wiki options using separate
|Dictionary| variables and subsequently compose them into |g:vimwiki_list|. >
let wiki_1 = {}
let wiki_1.path = '~/my_docs/'
let wiki_1.html_template = '~/public_html/template.tpl'
let wiki_1.nested_syntaxes = {'python': 'python', 'c++': 'cpp'}
let wiki_2 = {}
let wiki_2.path = '~/project_docs/'
let wiki_2.index = 'main'
let g:vimwiki_list = [wiki_1, wiki_2]
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12.2 Temporary Wiki *vimwiki-temporary-wiki*
The creation of temporary wikis allows you to create a wiki on the fly.
If a file with a registered wiki extension (see |vimwiki-register-extension|)
is opened in a directory that: 1) is not listed in |g:vimwiki_list|, and 2) is
not a subdirectory of any such directory, then a temporary wiki is created and
appended to the list of configured wikis in |g:vimwiki_list|.
In addition to Vimwiki's editing functionality, the temporary wiki enables: 1)
wiki-linking to other files in the same subtree, 2) highlighting of existing
wiki pages when |vimwiki-option-maxhi| is activated, and 3) HTML generation to
|vimwiki-option-path_html|.
Temporary wikis are configured using default |vimwiki-local-options|, except
for the path, extension, and syntax options. The path and extension are set
using the file's location and extension. The syntax is set to Vimwiki's
default unless another syntax is registered via |vimwiki-register-extension|.
Use |g:vimwiki_global_ext| to turn off creation of temporary wikis.
NOTE: Vimwiki assumes that the locations of distinct wikis do not overlap.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

</div>
</body>
</html>
where
%title% is replaced by a wiki page name or by a |vimwiki-title|
%root_path% is replaced by a count of ../ for pages buried in subdirs:
if you have wikilink [[dir1/dir2/dir3/my page in a subdir]] then
%root_path% is replaced by '../../../'.
%content% is replaced by a wiki file content.
The default template will be applied to all wiki pages unless a page specifies
a template. Consider you have wiki page named 'Maxim.wiki' and you want apply
'person.html' template to it. Just add: >

Vimwiki comes with a default CSS file "style.css".
*vimwiki-option-maxhi*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value Values~
maxhi 0 0, 1
Description~
If on, wiki links to non-existent wiki files are highlighted. However, it can
be quite slow. If you still want it, set maxhi to 1: >
let g:vimwiki_list = [{'path': '~/my_site/', 'maxhi': 1}]
*vimwiki-option-nested_syntaxes*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value Values~
nested_syntaxes {} pairs of highlight keyword and Vim filetype
Description~
You can configure preformatted text to be highlighted with any syntax
available for Vim.
For example the following setup in your vimrc: >
let wiki = {}
let wiki.path = '~/my_wiki/'
let wiki.nested_syntaxes = {'python': 'python', 'c++': 'cpp'}
let g:vimwiki_list = [wiki]
would give you Python and C++ highlighting in: >
{{{class="brush: python"
for i in range(1, 5):
print(i)
}}}
{{{class="brush: c++"
#include "helloworld.h"
int helloworld()
{
printf("hello world");
}
}}}
or in: >
{{{c++
#include "helloworld.h"
int helloworld()
{
printf("hello world");
}
}}}
{{{python
for i in range(1, 5):
print(i)
}}}
*vimwiki-option-automatic_nested_syntaxes*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value~
automatic_nested_syntaxes 1
Description~
If set, the nested syntaxes (|vimwiki-option-nested_syntaxes|) are
automatically derived when opening a buffer.
Just write your preformatted text in your file like this >
{{{xxx
my preformatted text
}}}
where xxx is a Vim filetype.
Note that you may have to reload the file (|:edit|) to see the highlight.
Since every file is scanned for the markers of preformatted text when it is
opened, it can be slow when you have huge files. In this case, set this option
to 0.
*vimwiki-option-diary_rel_path*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value~
diary_rel_path diary/
Description~
The path to the diary wiki files, relative to |vimwiki-option-path|.
*vimwiki-option-diary_index*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value~
diary_index diary
Description~
Name of wiki-file that holds all links to dated wiki files.
*vimwiki-option-diary_header*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value~
diary_header Diary
Description~
Name of the header in |vimwiki-option-diary_index| where links to dated
wiki-files are located.
*vimwiki-option-diary_sort*

Description~
Sort links in a diary index page.
*vimwiki-option-custom_wiki2html*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value~
custom_wiki2html ''
Description~
The full path to an user-provided script that converts a wiki page to HTML.
Vimwiki calls the provided |vimwiki-option-custom_wiki2html| script from the
command-line, using |:!| invocation.
The following arguments, in this order, are passed to the script:
1. force : [0/1] overwrite an existing file
2. syntax : the syntax chosen for this wiki
3. extension : the file extension for this wiki
4. output_dir : the full path of the output directory
5. input_file : the full path of the wiki page
6. css_file : the full path of the css file for this wiki
7. template_path : the full path to the wiki's templates
8. template_default : the default template name
9. template_ext : the extension of template files
10. root_path : a count of ../ for pages buried in subdirs
For example, if you have wikilink [[dir1/dir2/dir3/my page in a subdir]]
then this argument is '../../../'.
Options 7-10 are experimental and may change in the future. If any of these
parameters is empty, a hyphen "-" is passed to the script in its place.
For an example and further instructions, refer to the following script:
$VIMHOME/autoload/vimwiki/customwiki2html.sh
An alternative converter was developed by Jason6Anderson, and can
be located at https://github.com/vimwiki-backup/vimwiki/issues/384
To use the internal wiki2html converter, use an empty string (the default).
*vimwiki-option-list_margin*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value~
list_margin -1
Description~
Width of left-hand margin for lists. When negative, the current 'shiftwidth'
is used. This affects the appearance of the generated links (see
|:VimwikiGenerateLinks|), the Table of contents (|vimwiki-toc|) and the
behavior of the list manipulation commands |:VimwikiListChangeLevel| and the
local mappings |vimwiki_glstar|, |vimwiki_gl#| |vimwiki_gl-|, |vimwiki_gl-|,
|vimwiki_gl1|, |vimwiki_gla|, |vimwiki_glA|, |vimwiki_gli|, |vimwiki_glI| and
|vimwiki_i_<C-L>_<C-M>|.
Note: if you use MediaWiki syntax, you probably would like to set this option
to 0, because every indented line is considered verbatim text.
*vimwiki-option-auto_tags*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Default value Values~
auto_tags 0 0, 1
Description~
Set this option to 1 to automatically update the tags metadata when the
current wiki page is saved: >
let g:vimwiki_list = [{'path': '~/my_site/', 'auto_tags': 1}]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12.4 Global Options *vimwiki-global-options*
Global options are configured using the following pattern: >
let g:option_name = option_value
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_hl_headers*
Highlight headers with =Reddish=, ==Greenish==, ===Blueish=== colors.
Value Description~
1 Use VimwikiHeader1-VimwikiHeader6 group colors to highlight
different header levels.
0 Use |hl-Title| color for headers.
Default: 0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_hl_cb_checked*
Highlight checked list items with a special color:
* [X] the whole line can be highlighted with the option set to 1.
* this line is highlighted as well with the option set to 2
* [ ] this line is never highlighted
Value Description~
0 Don't highlight anything.
1 Highlight checked [X] list item with |group-name| "Comment".
2 Highlight checked [X] list item and all its child items.
Default: 0
Note: Option 2 does not work perfectly. Specifically, it might break if the
list item contains preformatted text or if you mix tabs and spaces for
indenting. Also, indented headers can be highlighted erroneously.
Furthermore, if your list is long, Vim's highlight can break. To solve this,
consider putting >
au BufEnter *.wiki :syntax sync fromstart
in your .vimrc
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_global_ext*
Control the creation of |vimwiki-temporary-wiki|s.
If a file with a registered extension (see |vimwiki-register-extension|) is
opened in a directory that is: 1) not listed in |g:vimwiki_list|, and 2) not a
subdirectory of any such directory, then:
Value Description~
1 make temporary wiki and append it to |g:vimwiki_list|.
0 don't make temporary wiki in that dir.
If your preferred wiki extension is .txt then you can >
let g:vimwiki_global_ext = 0
to restrict Vimwiki's operation to only those paths listed in g:vimwiki_list.
Other text files wouldn't be treated as wiki pages.
Default: 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_ext2syntax* *vimwiki-register-extension*
A many-to-one mapping between file extensions and syntaxes whose purpose is to
register the extensions with Vimwiki.
E.g.: >
let g:vimwiki_ext2syntax = {'.md': 'markdown',
\ '.mkd': 'markdown',
\ '.wiki': 'media'}
An extension that is registered with Vimwiki can trigger creation of a
|vimwiki-temporary-wiki| with the associated syntax. File extensions used in
|g:vimwiki_list| are automatically registered with Vimwiki using the default
syntax.
Default: {}
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_menu*
Create a menu in the menu bar of GVim, where you can open the available wikis.
Value Description~
'' No menu
'Vimwiki' Top level menu "Vimwiki"
'Plugin.Vimwiki' "Vimwiki" submenu of top level menu "Plugin"
etc.
Default: 'Vimwiki'
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_listsyms*
String of 5 symbols to show the progression of todo list items.
Default value is ' .oOX'.
The first char is for 0% done items.
The fifth is for 100% done items.
You can set it to some more fancy symbols like this:
>
let g:vimwiki_listsyms = '✗○◐●✓'
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_use_mouse*
Use local mouse mappings from |vimwiki-local-mappings|.
Value Description~
0 Do not use mouse mappings.
1 Use mouse mappings.
Default: 0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_folding*
Enable/disable Vimwiki's folding (outline) functionality. Folding in Vimwiki
can uses either the 'expr' or the 'syntax' |foldmethod| of Vim.
Value Description~
'' Disable folding
'expr' Folding based on expression (folds sections and code blocks)
'syntax' Folding based on syntax (folds sections; slower than 'expr')
'list' Folding based on expression (folds list subitems; much slower)
Default: ''
Limitations:
- Opening very large files may be slow when folding is enabled.
- 'list' folding is particularly slow with larger files.
- 'list' is intended to work with lists nicely indented with 'shiftwidth'.
- 'syntax' is only available for the default syntax so far.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_list_ignore_newline*
This is HTML related.
Convert newlines to <br />s in multiline list items.
Value Description~
0 Newlines in a list item are converted to <br />s.
1 Ignore newlines.
Default: 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_use_calendar*
Create new or open existing diary wiki-file for the date selected in Calendar.
See |vimwiki-calendar|.
Value Description~
0 Do not use calendar.
1 Use calendar.
Default: 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*VimwikiLinkHandler*
A customizable link handler can be defined to override Vimwiki's behavior when
opening links. Each recognized link, whether it is a wikilink, wiki-include
link or a weblink, is first passed to |VimwikiLinkHandler| to see if it can be
handled. The return value 1 indicates success.
If the link is not handled successfully, the behavior of Vimwiki depends on
the scheme. "wiki:", "diary:" or schemeless links are opened in Vim. "file:"
and "local:" links are opened with a system default handler.
You can redefine the VimwikiLinkHandler function in your .vimrc to do
something else: >
function! VimwikiLinkHandler(link)
try
let browser = 'C:\Program Files\Firefox\firefox.exe'
execute '!start "'.browser.'" ' . a:link
return 1
catch
echo "This can happen for a variety of reasons ..."
endtry
return 0
endfunction
A second example handles a new scheme, "vfile:", which behaves similar to
"file:", but the files are always opened with Vim in a new tab: >
function! VimwikiLinkHandler(link)
" Use Vim to open external files with the 'vfile:' scheme. E.g.:
" 1) [[vfile:~/Code/PythonProject/abc123.py]]
" 2) [[vfile:./|Wiki Home]]
let link = a:link
if link =~# '^vfile:'
let link = link[1:]
else
return 0
endif
let link_infos = vimwiki#base#resolve_link(link)
if link_infos.filename == ''
echomsg 'Vimwiki Error: Unable to resolve link!'
return 0
else
exe 'tabnew ' . fnameescape(link_infos.filename)
return 1
endif
endfunction
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*VimwikiLinkConverter*
This function can be overridden in your .vimrc to specify what a link looks
like when converted to HTML. The parameters of the function are:
- the link as a string
- the full path to the wiki file where the link is in
- the full path to the output HTML file
It should return the HTML link if successful or an empty string '' otherwise.
This example changes how relative links to external files using the "local:"
scheme look like in HTML. Per default, they would become links relative to
the HTML output directory. This function converts them to links relative to
the wiki file, i.e. a link [[local:../document.pdf]] becomes
<a href="../document.pdf">. Also, this function will copy document.pdf to the
right place. >
function! VimwikiLinkConverter(link, source_wiki_file, target_html_file)
if a:link =~# '^local:'
let link_infos = vimwiki#base#resolve_link(a:link)
let html_link = vimwiki#path#relpath(
\ fnamemodify(a:source_wiki_file, ':h'), link_infos.filename)
let relative_link =
\ fnamemodify(a:target_html_file, ':h') . '/' . html_link
call system('cp ' . fnameescape(link_infos.filename) .
\ ' ' . fnameescape(relative_link))
return html_link
endif
return ''
endfunction
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*VimwikiWikiIncludeHandler*
Vimwiki includes the content of a wiki-include URL as an image by default.
A trial feature allows you to supply your own handler for wiki-include links.
The handler should return the empty string when it does not recognize or
cannot otherwise convert the link. A customized handler might look like this: >
" Convert {{URL|#|ID}} -> URL#ID
function! VimwikiWikiIncludeHandler(value)
let str = a:value
" complete URL
let url_0 = matchstr(str, g:vimwiki_rxWikiInclMatchUrl)
" URL parts
let link_infos = vimwiki#base#resolve_link(url_0)
let arg1 = matchstr(str, VimwikiWikiInclMatchArg(1))
let arg2 = matchstr(str, VimwikiWikiInclMatchArg(2))
if arg1 =~ '#'
return link_infos.filename.'#'.arg2
endif
" Return the empty string when unable to process link
return ''
endfunction
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_table_mappings*
Enable/disable table mappings for INSERT mode.
Value Description~
0 Disable table mappings.
1 Enable table mappings.
Default: 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_table_auto_fmt*
Enable/disable table auto formatting after leaving INSERT mode.
Value Description~
0 Disable table auto formatting.
1 Enable table auto formatting.
Default: 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_w32_dir_enc*
Convert directory name from current 'encoding' into 'g:vimwiki_w32_dir_enc'
before it is created.
If you have 'enc=utf-8' and set up >
let g:vimwiki_w32_dir_enc = 'cp1251'
<
then following the next link with <CR>: >
[[привет/мир]]
>
would convert utf-8 'привет' to cp1251 and create directory with that name.
Default: ''
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_CJK_length*
Use a special method to calculate the correct length of the strings with
double-wide characters (to align table cells properly).
Value Description~
0 Do not use it.
1 Use it.
Default: 0
Note: Vim 7.3 has a new function |strdisplaywidth()|, so for users of an up to
date Vim, this option is obsolete.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_dir_link*
This option is about what to do with links to directories, like
[[directory/]], [[papers/]], etc.
Value Description~
'' Open 'directory/' using the standard netrw plugin.
'index' Open 'directory/index.wiki', create if needed.
'main' Open 'directory/main.wiki', create if needed.
etc.
Default: '' (empty string)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_html_header_numbering*
Set this option if you want headers to be auto-numbered in HTML.
E.g.: >
1 Header1
1.1 Header2
1.2 Header2
1.2.1 Header3
1.2.2 Header3
1.3 Header2
2 Header1
3 Header1
etc.
Value Description~
0 Header numbering is off.
1 Header numbering is on. Headers are numbered starting from
header level 1.
2 Header numbering is on. Headers are numbered starting from
header level 2.
etc.
Example when g:vimwiki_html_header_numbering = 2: >
Header1
1 Header2
2 Header2
2.1 Header3
2.1.1 Header4
2.1.2 Header4
2.2 Header3
3 Header2
4 Header2
etc.
Default: 0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_html_header_numbering_sym*
Ending symbol for |g:vimwiki_html_header_numbering|.
Value Description~
'.' Dot will be added after a header's number.
')' Closing bracket will be added after a header's number.
etc.
With
let g:vimwiki_html_header_numbering_sym = '.'
headers would look like: >
1. Header1
1.1. Header2
1.2. Header2
1.2.1. Header3
1.2.2. Header3
1.3. Header2
2. Header1
3. Header1
Default: '' (empty)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_valid_html_tags*
Case-insensitive comma separated list of HTML tags that can be used in
Vimwiki. When converting to HTML, these tags are left as they are, while
every other tag is escaped.
Default: 'b,i,s,u,sub,sup,kbd,br,hr'
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_user_htmls*
Comma-separated list of HTML files that have no corresponding wiki files and
should not be deleted after |:VimwikiAll2HTML|.
Default: ''
Example:
Consider you have 404.html and search.html in your Vimwiki 'path_html'.
With: >
let g:vimwiki_user_htmls = '404.html,search.html'
they would not be deleted after |:VimwikiAll2HTML|.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_conceallevel*
In Vim 7.3 'conceallevel' is local to the current window, thus if you open a
Vimwiki buffer in a new tab or window, it would be set to the default value.
Vimwiki sets 'conceallevel' to g:vimwiki_conceallevel every time a Vimwiki
buffer is entered.
With default settings, Vimwiki conceals one-character markers, shortens long
URLs and hides markers and URL for links that have a description.
Default: 2
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_autowriteall*
In Vim 'autowriteall' is a global setting. With g:vimwiki_autowriteall Vimwiki
makes it local to its buffers.
Value Description~
0 autowriteall is off
1 autowriteall is on
Default: 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_url_maxsave*
Setting the value of |g:vimwiki_url_maxsave| to 0 will prevent any link
shortening: you will see the full URL in all types of links, with no parts
being concealed. Concealing of one-character markers is not affected.
When positive, the value determines the maximum number of characters that
are retained at the end after concealing the middle part of a long URL.
It could be less: in case one of the characters /,#,? is found near the end,
the URL will be concealed up to the last occurrence of that character.
Note:
* The conceal feature works only with Vim >= 7.3.
* When using the default |wrap| option of Vim, the effect of concealed links
is not always pleasing, because the visible text on longer lines with
a lot of concealed parts may appear to be strangely broken across several
lines. This is a limitation of Vim's |conceal| feature.
* Many color schemes do not define an unobtrusive color for the Conceal
highlight group - this might be quite noticeable on shortened URLs.
Default: 15
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_diary_months*
It is a |Dictionary| with the numbers of months and corresponding names. Diary
uses it.
Redefine it in your .vimrc to get localized months in your diary:
let g:vimwiki_diary_months = {
\ 1: 'Январь', 2: 'Февраль', 3: 'Март',
\ 4: 'Апрель', 5: 'Май', 6: 'Июнь',
\ 7: 'Июль', 8: 'Август', 9: 'Сентябрь',
\ 10: 'Октябрь', 11: 'Ноябрь', 12: 'Декабрь'
\ }
Default:
let g:vimwiki_diary_months = {
\ 1: 'January', 2: 'February', 3: 'March',
\ 4: 'April', 5: 'May', 6: 'June',
\ 7: 'July', 8: 'August', 9: 'September',
\ 10: 'October', 11: 'November', 12: 'December'
\ }
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_toc_header*
A string with the magic header that tells Vimwiki where the Table of Contents
(see |vimwiki-toc|) is located in a file. You can change it to the
appropriate word in your mother tongue like this: >
let g:vimwiki_toc_header = 'Inhalt'
The default is 'Contents'.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_map_prefix*
A string which specifies the prefix for all global mappings (and some local
ones). Use it to avoid conflicts with other plugins. Note that it must be
defined before the plugin loads. >
let g:vimwiki_map_prefix = '<Leader>e'
The default is '<Leader>w'.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*g:vimwiki_auto_chdir*
When set to 1, enables auto-cd feature. Whenever Vimwiki page is opened,
Vimwiki performs an |:lcd| to the Vimwiki folder to where the page belongs.
Value Description~
0 Do not change directory.
1 Change directory to Vimwiki folder on opening page.
Default: 0
