This is a recipe to create a VIM project file. This is good for development,
and if you use VIM_ with the Project_ plugin.

This recipe makes use of the mkvimproject_ egg.

code repository:


Just add a buildout section like this::


recipe = collective.recipe.vimproject .zcml .pt .cfg .xml .txt .rst
set hlsearch

.. _VIM:
.. _Project:
.. _mkvimproject:


vim: set ft=rst tw=75 nocin nosi ai sw=4 ts=4 expandtab:

Detailed Documentation

Supported options

The recipe supports the following options:

All options are **optional**.

a list of patterns to be included in the project file

If this key exists, the recipe wil also use **ctags** to create a tag
file of the buildout directory

This list will be added to the **in.vim** script to set the tag files.
Here you can add special directories (like buildout egg caches)

additional statements to add verbatim to the **in.vim** script.

Example usage

We'll start by creating a buildout that uses the recipe::

>>> write('buildout.cfg',
... """
... [buildout]
... parts=vpj
... eggs=mkvimproject
... newest=true
... [vpj]
... recipe = collective.recipe.vimproject
... .zcml .pt .cfg .xml .txt .rst
... create_tagfile=yes
... in_vim_additional=
... set hlsearch
... tags=/opt/inquant/buildout/eggs/tags
... """)

Running the buildout gives us::

>>> print system(buildout)
Installing test1.
Unused options for test1: 'option2' 'option1'.
