After one month of struggling with PLAIN VIM, I made up my minds to make my VIM experience smoother and more IDE-oriented. After some research and experiment with varies plugins, here is my conclusion:
- Make sure exuberant ctags is installed.
- Install plugin Taglist so Vim can make use of ctags.
- Configure ctags in your
.ctagsfile in home directory to fit your needs.
- Install plugin NERDTree to mimic GUI-like directory browsing in Vim.
- Install plugin SnipMate to save time on typing in Vim.
- Install plugin TComment to (un)comment codes quickly in Vim.
- Configure those plugins in
.vimrcto make them work like charms.
Now, look what my Vim editor has become - a powerful IDE! I am turning myself into a real programmer.
Happy Vim hacking!
