• Question about VIM and development environments


    I set up my VIM to use the following environment:
    https://github.com/ets-labs/python-vimrc

    My question is this, is there a way to have multiple “environments” for vim? Could I have base vim and then have this new environment under a different name? Specifically, could I use terminal to open base vim with “vim” and then this environment opened in terminal with “Pythonvim” (or something to that extent)?

    Thanks for any feedback!

  • Try -u parameter and specify a path to an alternative configuration file.

    For example: vim -u ~/myvimrc

    See http://linuxcommand.org/lc3_man_pages/vim1.html

  • Okay, so just typing that in gives me an error “cannot read from (file path to non existing myvimrc)” however it does open default vim after. Would I just return vim back to default and then put the configuration files in the “myvimrc” for the github setup? Then type vim in terminal for normal vim and type vim -u ~/myvimrc for the configured vim?
    Thanks

  • It was only an example… You can store different configs and use them like this…

  • @joekamprad I just wanted to make sure I was thinking along the same lines as you and the man page 😐

  • to use the github config you want for python you will need to follow the readme.me

    Installation

    You can install it by using CLI just have next command executed:

    sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ets-labs/python-vimrc/master/setup.sh)"
    

    and then may backup your default vimrc to a different name before, to have it aviable with the vim -u ~/.original-vimrc command…

  • and i would create a short for may be vim-p vim-o

    vim ~/.bashrc
    
    alias vim-p="vim"
    alias vim-o="vim -u ~/.original-vimrc"
