I've noticed that there are quite a bit of devs here that use VIM as their editor / ide (you can make it that way ) So, i've been using VIM for about 2 years now and still have a lot to learn when using it. Here's how I have my current VIM config: As you can see, it's a light and easy to read color scheme with lots of nice functionality like auto completion for A LOT of different languages and it adapts snippets based on what is already in the current file. NOTE: This is how it looks in a unix-based system. This config does work well in MAC/OSX as well, but not too well in Windows. You can get this by going through these steps: 1) Download / Install VIM 2) Go to: https://github.com/spf13/spf13-vim 3) Follow the installation steps based on your OS 4) In your .vim/colors folder (make it if it does not exist), put a file named peaksea.vim with these contents (from github): Code: [URL="https://raw.github.com/vim-scripts/peaksea/master/colors/peaksea.vim"]peaksea.vim[/URL] 5) Create a .vimrc.local file (*nix or MAC) with these contents: Code: set nocursorline set nohlsearch set background=dark colorscheme peaksea After that point, you should have a manageable VIM config. But, if you would like to remove a few extra things like I did here's how you do it: To remove relative numbering :crazy:, you have to go into the .vimrc.bundles and comment or delete the line that says "bundle blah/numbers". To remove indentation markings :crazy: you have to into the .vimrc and comment or delete the lines under the .vimrc -> plugins -> indent_guides (Lines 504-516) To remove the characters that come up when you indent or have spaces :crazy: remove / comment the lines 160 and 161. The set list option with the set listchars parameters allows for that to happen. After doing all of this, you should have a very nice VIM config that has very good auto completion. If you have any questions, please post and i'll help you through it. I would like to see what I can addon to this VIM config or just make a new one with even better stuff. Post your configs as well!
