Maybe should add --force to allow upgrades, but keeping it stable for now.
These are my Vim and Neovim settings that I like to keep synced between my computers for convenience. This bootstrap setup will support both Vim and Neovim and uses different plugins, where needed, to bridge gaps in functionality.
I use Neovim day to day, but there are times it is not available, so Vim and older Neovim installs are supported as well.
Vim and Neovim less than 0.5 support is really in maintanence mode now and not heavily maintained. I may actually trim down the configuration to be more minimal and act as an alternative to my more IDE like Neovim environment.
The bootstrap script included will set the proper symblinks and run package managers to install any plugins.
git clone https://github.com/ViViDboarder/vim-settings.git
You can also remove any installed plugins or uninstall this configuration using either
make clean or
make uninstall respectively.
Nearly every version of Vim or Neovim found on major distros is supported right now. To simplify things, I am considering adopting the following rule: Supporting only the lowest version of each found in the latest Ubuntu LTS and Debian Stable releases. I'll also make tags for commits where I drop support for a version.
vim directory here is what gets symblinked to
~/.vim, and the
neovim directory gets symblinked to
~/.config/nvim. Inside, the
init.vim file will also get symblinked to
neovim/init.vim file will dyanmically load the older non-Lua configs if Lua is not supported. The other included directories are mostly standard vim directories that provide some additional configuration files. The exceptions would be
backup, which becomes the new default location for storing backup files while editing. The
tmp directory is for storing session information. The
rc directory is where all the
vimrc work gets done.
This config is in Lua with the philosopy of taking advantage of as much out of the box capaiblities as possible.
Vim and old Nvim
The rc Files
init.vim file essentially sets vim up to import the rc files from the
rc directory. The actual configuration exists almost entirely in the
rc directory. Each file should be fairly self explanatory.
One problem with syncing rc file between different machines, is that you may have different usages. That is solved by this framework by making use of
local.rc files. For every
*.rc.vim, you may provide a
*.local.rc.vim file which will be loaded after the shared one. Here you can override or add anything to the synced configuration without it causing problems on any other machine.
I am not the original creators of some of the files included in the vim directory and only vendor them out of convienince. If I am missing any licensing information I'd be happy to attach it.
