This is a script to convert Vim documentation file into HTML.


  • Perl
  • Python


The basic usage is:

./ plugin.txt

or if the script is somewhere in the $PATH: plugin.txt

The only "advanced" usage is currently enabled by -r or --raw flag, in which case instead of outputting complete standalone HTML page only minimal output is produced. This way after customizing style/template only the contents can be replaced.


HTML formatting is performed via modified version of by Carlo Teubner <(first name) dot (last name) at gmail dot com>. This one is simplified to remove unused here code and a bit improved to add anchors to each tag definition. CSS style is from there too.

Tags are extracted via helpztags tool written by Jakub Turski and Artur R. Czechowski It's supplied alongside for convenience and to provide a couple of changes, see there.
