Pimping my vim or giving up on heavy IDEs

by actionjack on April 17, 2012 | One comment

I’ve given up on using heavy weight IDEs to write my puppet code, they are memory hungry, slow and make you forget how the command tools actually work.

So in that thread I pimped up my vim with some additional vim modules so I can hack around without the overhead.

mkdir -p ~/.vim/autoload ~/.vim/bundle
curl -so ~/.vim/autoload/pathogen.vim \
cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://github.com/tpope/vim-fugitive.git fugitive
git clone https://github.com/rodjek/vim-puppet.git puppet
vi ~/.vimrc

Contents of my ~/.vimrc:

set tabstop=4
set shiftwidth=4
set expandtab
call pathogen#infect()
syntax on
filetype plugin indent on

Relevant links:




Thanks for Lowe Schmidt for recommending 2 additional plugins that are exceptionally sweet!

May I also suggest tabular and syntastic for vim, auto aligning of => and syntax checking built in 🙂
