My 12 Year-Old (Neo)Vim Configuration


I've been iterating on this configuration for more than 12 years and 1,000 commits. It's very unlikely you'd want to use it directly. Instead, feel free to learn and take snippets from it.

Jump to Plugin List


Plugins and Configuration in their Own File

This is one of the things I'm most proud of, definitely steal it.

Each plugin is included and managed in its own file.


Be sure you read the About section above.

  1. git clone [email protected]:mutewinter/dot_vim.git ~/.config/nvim.
  2. cd ~/.config/nvim.

Now you have a choice. The automated script or the manual process.

  1. Run scripts/setup.


  1. rake vim:link to make the .vimrc and .nvimrc symbolic links.
  2. vim +PlugInstall +qall

Vim Requirements


  • Pressing enter in normal mode saves the current buffer, if needed.

And many more. See mappings.vim and plug_plugins for more.

Installing Custom Plugins

Create a new .vim file with the same name as the plugin you'd like to install in plug_plugins/custom. Then add the installation block. For example:


if exists('g:plug_installing_plugins')
  Plug 'matze/vim-move.vim'

let g:move_key_modifier = 'C'

This example installs vim-move.
