This plugin provides a start screen for Vim and Neovim.
It provides dynamically created headers or footers and uses configurable lists to show recently used or bookmarked files and persistent sessions. All of this can be accessed in a simple to use menu that even allows to open multiple entries at once.
Startify doesn't get in your way and works out-of-the-box, but provides many options for fine-grained customization.
Installation and Documentation
Use your favorite plugin manager.
It works without any configuration, but you might want to look into the documentation for further customization:
:h startify :h startify-faq
That's it. A fancy start screen for Vim.
(Almost all visible features enabled. Colorscheme: vim-janah.)
The Vim 7.4.898 from macOS 10.12 (
/usr/bin/vim) comes with a bug, that opens
readonly set. Don't use this Vim from 3 years ago. Use homebrew or
MacPorts to get a current version.
