Sensible plugin for Vim

Sensible is a super simple plugin for Vim by Tim Pope. It is nothing but a set of sensible settings for your vimrc. It is a great way to start off on a new system where you do not have access to your fully featured vimrc. I only wish he explained some of the choices he made for the options in this file.

If I have a local account on the remote or new computer, I find it far easier to just replicate my vimrc, and other dot files, using GNU Stow.

unimpaired plugin for Vim

unimpaired is yet another useful Vim plugin by Tim Pope. It provides convenient key sequences for common operations in Vim.

Some of the mappings from unimpaired that I find most useful:

  • ]b and [b to switch forward and backward between buffers
  • ]space to add a new line without going into Insert mode
  • ]q and [q for :cnext and :cprev

Tried with: Vim 7.3
