A short description of my vimrc config file.
I want to see the line number always:
Show the line number, the column number, and the relative position of the cursor in the file, as a percentage. More details here.
Show the current filename always.
I like writing blog posts with lines wrapped at 80 characters without creating a new line.
set wrap set columns=80 set linebreak
I also have a few Plugins. Read this tutorial to install a plugin in Vim.
- Markdown with correct code highlight
- A better JSON for Vim
- Color schemes
And my favorite: Autosave in Vim.
