Source code for My first vimrc, a vimrc generator that doesn’t add a world of complexity.
The concept is inspired by vimconfig.com, but I wouldn’t recommend this site for various reasons (for a start it uses invalid syntax, and some options it sets are inadvisable). I did like the idea though, hence this project.
It is an alternative to spf13, vim-bootstrap, and whatnot which give new users a huge vimrc full of undocumented/unclear options.
Who not just use
$ wc -l options.coffee /usr/share/vim/vim81/doc/options.txt 457 options.coffee 9229 /usr/share/vim/vim81/doc/options.txt
Also, the help descriptions try to add a little bit more context/explanation
more aimed at new users, rather than being a reference manual like Vim’s
This project’s goal is not to list all possible options/snippets that you can stick in a vimrc. Only the most useful/common ones to give new users a good place to start from.
Ideally, the list should fit on a single page of a 1920×1080 screen, and reading through it all shouldn’t take more than about half an hour at the most.
