I’m a newbie. Is oh-my-vim made me a Vim guru ?

No, but it can help you to setup a friendly environment.

After the installation step install some usefull plugins with the following:

$ oh-my-vim install -d usefull

Then have a look at the defaults and map profiles and enable them in your .vimrc

You’re now ready to go…!

What if I already use pathogen ?

Nothing. Just remove the pathogen stuff from your vimrc

Can I use oh-my-vim from Vim ?

Yes, and you should. You’ll get some completion. Just use :OhMyVim <args>

Can I install a bundle from a mercurial repository ?

Yes. You just need to prefix your url with hg+:

$ oh-my-vim install hg+

Good project but I’m missing a feature. Can you add it ?

No. But you can. Fork the repository and submit a pull request.

I have a cool plugin and I want to add it to oh-my-vim-registry

Submit a pull request after adding it to the registry

Does oh-my-vim work on windows ?

No, it wont be so hard to port but I’m not supporting this OS
