I have been afraid to try pathogen-plugin for vim for a long time. I thought it would be complicated and postponed it. Actually it is not hard at all and I should have tried it ages ago.
- Install debian package
- Then follow this advice: https://gist.github.com/romainl/9970697 or https://github.com/tpope/vim-pathogen
As an example let us install vimwiki (installation instructions at the end of the README): https://github.com/vimwiki/vimwiki
I took the gitly approach:
cd .vim/bundle git clone https://github.com/vimwiki/vimwiki
EDIT 2018: This how-to is still valid and was recently tested on a machine running Debian Stretch.
If you have any questions, suggestions, thoughts and comments please feel free to email me.
