What is Project-Jumper?

Project Jumper is a Vim plugin which creates keyboard shortcuts for editing most common files or exploring most common directories in Symfony 1 and 2 (work in progress) frameworks.

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.

Important notice for Symfony 2 users: In order Project-Jumper to work you need to create a symfony2 file in your project main directory. It may be empty but it's better to use is as wrapper for app/console with content like this (also executable permissions need to be set for convenient use): php app/console $@


Default shortcuts work from Vim edit mode. To invoke a jump, keep ctrl and alt pressed and then type a key depending whare you're trying to jump to.

Project is determined during first jump and valid until Vim window is closed.
