Since I started using Vim 7 I created my configuration file. I upload it to any remote server where I have vim installed. Here it is for anyone who likes vim:
Highlights of the file:
- Enabled maximum memory usage for better performance when you have lots of RAM (1 GB here).
- Enabled the use of ~/.viminfo which remembers data across restarts of vim (open buffers, marks, history and such).
- Automatic complete.
- Automatic Indentation.
- Syntax highlighting.
- Code folding enabled.
- Line numbering enabled.
- Automatic file backup, on save.
- Custom status line and ruler.
- For code indentation tabs are used instead of spaces. Tab width is set to 4 spaces.
- Word wrapping is enabled, but no automatic formatting is done in the actual file. Just like in Notepad (and other simple editors) you see the document wrapped on screen.
- Changed the keyboard mapping such that when you press " you get the second ". Same goes for when you open a parenthesis (, vim automatically closes the paranthesis with ).
- Added two new functions:
Fullscreendisables line numbers, code folding column and also disables the status line. You only get a view very similar to the view of more (or less). At the bottom of the screen, on the right side you have a small ruler which tells the buffer number, file type, line number, and column number. I use this function when I edit text documents - very nice to have a "simple" editor.
Eretidyis specifically tailored for me. This function just opens the ReTidy files. I use this quite often when cleaning documents.
For readability, I didn't use short notations in the file. For
example, I use
set autoindent instead of
I will update the file from time to time.
