How to add NoScrollBar to LightLine

LightLine is a lightweight statusline plugin for Vim. By default, it shows the location of current line relative to the entire file as a percent at the left of the statusbar.

However, I like to the NoScrollBar plugin to get a general sense of the current line in the file. So, I replaced the percent display with the output of NoScrollBar using a tiny function.

I added these lines in Vim to achieve this:

" Replace percent component of Lightline statusline
let g:lightline = {
      \ 'component_function': {
      \   'percent': 'NoScrollbarForLightline'
      \ }
      \ }

" Instead of % show NoScrollbar horizontal scrollbar
function! NoScrollbarForLightline()
    return noscrollbar#statusline()
endfunction

Tried with: Vim 7.4 and Ubuntu 16.04

How to show full file path in LightLine

LightLine is a lightweight statusline plugin for Vim. By default, it shows only the filename on the left side of the statusbar. I like to have the full file path displayed instead. It turns out that is easy to do.

The statusline has many components, and the component that shows the filename is called filename. We override this in LightLine with a tiny function that uses the expand function in Vim to get the full file path.

I added these lines in Vim to achieve this:

" Replace filename component of Lightline statusline
let g:lightline = {
      \ 'component_function': {
      \   'filename': 'FilenameForLightline'
      \ }
      \ }

" Show full path of filename
function! FilenameForLightline()
    return expand('%')
endfunction
