Manage Vim Plugins with Vundle
Being more of a visual developer, I’ve wanted to make my Vim look much like an IDE.
After setting my base vim using the dotfiles from https://github.com/addyosmani/dotfiles, I’ve wanted to enhance my vim with a folder viewer (NerdTree). I’ve looked at what other people are using and I’ve come across Vundle (https://github.com/gmarik/vundle), a plugin manager for Vim.
Setting up Vundle is very straightforward, in just four easy steps:
- vim ~/.vimrc
- add the vundle configs:
" let Vundle manage Vundle
" Please note that that's how you add plugins
filetype plugin indent on " required!
And then, voilà! you have all your Bundle plugins installed. In my case, I then do :NERDTree and I get the nice folder viewer for vim.
