Vim Venders!

A Vim config inspired by the work of Wim Wenders.

Quick Setup

There’s a setup script included that will create a bunch of directories in ~/.vim, symlink ~/.vimrc to ~/.vim/vimrc and install a bunch of plugins. Checkout and setup like so:

Make sure you have Make, Node.js and NPM installed (for Tern and YouCompleteMe) and then run the following:

git clone ~/.vim
cd ~/.vim

On MacOS, Make is included with Xcode. If you're on Linux, you probably already have it installed, and if you don't, you probably know how to install it.

Recommended Utilities


C and stuff like that


There's a bunch of Elm stuff to install. It's easiest to just copy and paste this in the terminal (assuming you have Node.js and NPM installed):

npm -g install elm elm-test elm-oracle elm-format


Also, you should run :GoInstallBinaries and Vim-Go will install all the other stuff you need.


Quick install everything:

npm -g install eslint babel-eslint eslint-plugin-react prettier
