1. Clone this repo:

cd  /usr/local/etc

Ps.: if you're on GNU/Linux, you may download it to "/usr/local/src".

git clone https://github.com/tiagopog/vimfiles.git

2. Make sure that Vim will find the vimrc file by symlinking it:

ln -s /usr/local/etc/vimfiles/vimrc ~/.vimrc

3. Install Vundle:

git clone https://github.com/gmarik/Vundle.vim.git ~/.vim/bundle/Vundle.vim

(for more information: https://github.com/gmarik/Vundle.vim)

Then enter:


5. Install and configure some plugin's dependencies:

5.1. For vim-colorschemes:

cd ~/.vim
ln -s bundle/vim-colorschemes/colors colors

5.2. For ag.vim:


brew install the_silver_searcher


apt-get install silversearcher-ag

CentOS: try building it from source.

5.3. For YouCompleteMe:

$ cd ~/.vim/bundle/YouCompleteMe
$ ./install.py

5.4. Ruby + RVM:

As Vim loads your shell with set shell=/bin/sh, just make sure that your shell's .profile loads the RVM scripts.
