Command-T for Vim, an awesome plugin
Command-T makes it fast and intuitive to find and open files with a minimal number of keystrokes. It's named Command-T because it is inspired by the "Go to File" window in TextMate. It should work on Mac, Windows and Linux.
fuzzyfinder.vim offers similar functionality to Command-T, but Command-T seems to be a much better implementation.
Some useful links:
It should be really easy to install Command-T, granted that your vim is built with Ruby support and that you have a C compiler:
1) Download command-t.vba 2) In a terminal run: $ vim command-t.vba 3) Then run source the vimball to install it: :source % 4) Afterwards build the C extension: $ cd ~/.vim/ruby/command-t $ ruby extconf.rb $ make
Once installed, restart Vim and read the documentation on how to use Command-T:
Be sure that your vim has support for ruby. You can find out by running:
In the :version output be sure that you can see +ruby.
I also had a weird error when trying to compile the C extension:
error: ‘for’ loop initial declaration used outside C99 mode
I solved this by adding -std=c99 to CFLAGS in the Makefile, e.g.:
CFLAGS += -std=c99
Try Command-T out
Just wanted to share this little plugin with you. If you enjoy this plugin remember to make a donation and support the developer.
