Matt Furden's vim dotfiles for Ruby and Clojure


  1. git clone in your home folder.
  2. mv dot_vim .vim
  3. cd .vim

Be sure to always edit the vimrc using ,v, which opens the vimrc in the .vim folder.


You can add plugins via editing the @CustomBundle.vim file in the custom/ directory. Any files ending in .vim in the custom/ directory will automatically be sourced on launch, allowing you to override any of the settings without losing the ability to pull this repo.
