I’d argue that some of these are a bit too environment-specific to warrant global inclusion but hey, I trust their judgement. I use an additional set, some of which I couldn’t live without. Here are the top five:
Even though our
.vimrc forces grep to use
Ag when available, I like to
include both the
Ag plugins in case the Silver Searcher isn’t
available (and I like the
Plugin 'mileszs/ack.vim' Plugin 'rking/ag.vim'
2. Tab Completion
This is a must have, and Supertab does a great job.
I love typing
div.<Tab>row<Tab> and suddenly being inside a new Bootstrap
row div ready for content. I’m not one to compare, but if you liked
Textmate’s autocomplete you’re going to love these plugins.
Plugin 'garbas/vim-snipmate' Plugin 'honza/vim-snippets'
4. Ruby Text Objects
Obviously only important if you write a lot of ruby, but Vim users know the importance of text objects and this one is critical for productive ruby development.
5. Character Pairs
Forget trying to hack your own character pair completion in
plugin does a great job intelligently autocompleting all of your (), , “”, etc
I have a handful of other plugins in my local bundles dotfile, feel free to poke around or suggest more!
