📅 2013-Jul-12 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ mru, plugin, vim, vim-startify ⬩ 📚 Archive

The vim-startify plugin provides a useful start screen when Vim is started without any files. By default, it shows a list of the most recently used (MRU) files of Vim. This file list can be navigated using j-k and file under cursor can be opened by pressing Enter. vim-startify can also be configured to show sessions and bookmarked files.


The vim-startify plugin can be installed using Pathogen by cloning its Github repository.

To get back the Startify opening screen anytime in Vim, type the command :Startify

Tried with: vim-startify 1.6, Vim 7.3.429 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
