Now that you know how to enable features in Vim, let's store all of them in one place so we don't need to constantly set them all the time.

Hi,
thanks for this short videos. Would it be possible to share the .vimrc file used to get the result shown at the very end of the last video ?
Thank you.

thanks for sharing your .vimrc file! I also found :vsp, :sp, :!, :colorscheme very useful too.

Hi, how do you autocomplete in shell?

Thats built in. If you start typing the name of anything, you can type the first few letters then hit to complete it

The Tab key will attempt to autocomplete in the shell. Tab will also attempt to autocomplete the text you type when in vim's command mode.

update your vim or install it via brew:
brew install vim --with-lua
add an alias to the new installed vim folder
.bashrc or aliases file if you have one.

alias vim="/usr/local/Cellar/vim/7.4.873/bin/vim"
