I use a pretty large list of Vim plugins - currently, the count is at 45. I went through a lot of these as part of this post last year, but the list has changed a bit since then.
Using My Configuration
git, you can easily download my full Vim configuration, including plugins (as git submodules), and start using it pretty easily after making a few symlinks.
You really should read my
vimrc if you intend to use it. There is a lot of stuff in there, not all of which you may want. Also, reading it is a great way to learn about what a lot of the plugins and shortcuts are doing for you.
Quick summary of how to download & use it:
$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/bhilburn/dotfiles.git bhilburn-configs.git $ ln -s bhilburn-configs.git/vim ~/.vim $ ln -s bhilburn-configs.git/vim/vimrc ~/.vimrc
The first command clones my configuration repository, including all submodules (which are how I store Vim plugins). The second two commands set up symbolic links to the
vimrc file and
vim directory you just downloaded.
In addition, you'll need ack to make use of the ack.vim plugin, and Steve Losh's 'friendly-find' to use my configuration for ctrlp. Both 'ctrlp' and 'ack.vim' are fantastic plugins that I use daily - they are absolutely worth the extra work.
ack, you'll need to download / install it. Instructions are here.
For 'friendly-find' (
ffind), it's actually a submodule in my
dotfiles.git repo, which you cloned above. Head into
bhilburn-configs.git/tools/friendly-find.git, and put that
ffind program in your '$PATH'.
Lastly, to get the cool-looking statusline shown in this post, you'll need to install the Powerline fonts (also a submodule in my
dotfiles.git repo that you just cloned). Head into
bhilburn-configs.git/fonts/powerline-fonts and install them.
My Plugin List
Since I use so many plugins, I didn't want to manually make a list - so, I wrote a quick Python program that goes through each of my vim plugin directories and queries information from the upsteam repository on Github.
