A short description of my vimrc config file.

Edit with:

vim ~/.vimrc

I want to see the line number always:

set number

Show the line number, the column number, and the relative position of the cursor in the file, as a percentage. More details here.

set ruler

Show the current static always.

set laststatus=2

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.

More details:
