Project-Jumper 0.1

What is Project-Jumper?

Project Jumper is a Vim plugin which creates keyboard shortcuts for editing most common files or exploring most common directories. Currenty works only in Symfony 1.4 projects but I have plans to extend support to Symfony 2 and Rails 3.

Latest version

Latest version of Vim Project Jumper can be found at


Unpack all *.vim files and this README into ~/.vim/plugin/project-jumper/ directory. Restart Vim if necessary.


Default shortucts work from Vim edit mode. To invoke a jump keep alt presses and then type j and other key depending whare you're trying to jump to.

Shortcuts are working only when current directory (you can check it with :pwd command) is from inside a project. Avoid using shortucts elsewhere cause it can do some heavy and unsuccessful file searching.
