puppet-vim

Build Status

Manage VIM via puppet.

Vim is an advanced text editor that seeks to provide the power of the de-facto Unix editor 'Vi', with a more complete feature set.

Sample Usage

Install VIM and use the provided configuration defaults

class { 'vim': }

Turn on line numbering

class { 'vim':
  opt_misc => ['number'],
}

Set F5 key to save and execute current file

class { 'vim':
  opt_maps => { '<F5>': '<Esc>:w<CR>:!%:p<CR>' },
}

Install pathogen for user 'johndoe'

vim::pathogen { 'johndoe': }

Install a plugin for user 'johndoe'. Using vim-commentary as an example. Be sure to install pathogen or the plugins won't load in vim for that user.

vim::plugin { 'vim-commentary': url => 'https://github.com/tpope/vim-commentary.git' }

Install a bundle of plugins recommended by this module's author. This will install pathogen for the user so defining it will not be necessary.

vim::bundle { 'johndoe': }

Note: The bundle installs vim-airline which is a statusline replacement. By default it tries to use some special characters to make it pretty. I initially had issues with getting these to work. Read this wiki for answers on why you don't have colors or special symbols.

Change colorscheme for user johndoe to grb256 (installed with bundle)

vim::config { 'colorscheme':
  user    => 'johndoe',
  content => 'colorscheme grb256',
}

Uninstall vim

class { 'vim':
  ensure => absent,
}
