A bunch of vim shortcuts, colors, and bundles to make your life easier

vim-up

A bunch of stuff to vim you up. Built for Mac. Heavily based on Square's maximum-awesome repo that's no longer maintained, plus a few other goodies.

What's in it?

Keyboard Shortcuts

  • ,d and ,f bring up NERDTree, a sidebar buffer for navigating and manipulating files
  • ,t brings up ctrlp.vim, a project file filter for easily opening specific files
  • ,b restricts ctrlp.vim to open buffers
  • ,a starts project search with ag.vim using the silver searcher (like ack, but faster)
  • ,z toggles paste modes
  • ds/cs delete/change surrounding characters (e.g. "Hey!" + ds" = Hey!, "Hey!" + cs"' = 'Hey!') with vim-surround
  • gcc toggles current line comment
  • gc toggles visual selection comment lines
  • vii/vai visually select in or around the cursor's indent
  • Vp/vp replaces visual selection with default register without yanking selected text (works with any visual selection)
  • ,[space] strips trailing whitespace
  • <C-]> jump to definition using ctags
  • ,l begins aligning lines on a string, usually used as ,l= to align assignments
  • <C-hjkl> move between windows, shorthand for <C-w> hjkl

Note: When you see C here, that means Ctrl (not Cmd)!

Install

rake

Update

rake

This will update all installed plugins using Vundle's :PluginInstall! command. If there are errors, just clear out the problem directories in ~/.vim/bundle. :help PluginInstall provides more detailed information about Vundle.

Customize

This creates some .local files for your .vimrc and your bundles if you'd like to customize everything on your local machine. If you'd like to make a PR, don't put it in the .local files, just put it in the main ones!

Colors

This repo includes a bunch of different colorschemes to test out, and by default uses Tomorrow-Night. You can test out different colors using the colorscheme vim command, and just tabbing through the different options. There are a lot. Don't be overwhelmed. :wink:

Uninstall

rake uninstall

This won't remove everything, but your vim configuration should be reset to whatever it was before installing. Some uninstallation steps will be manual.
