plugins for vim, adding bells and whistles


Vim is a very capable editor. Its scripting support allows the use of plugins that enhance the functionality of it. Many people have written scripts, they are scattered all over the web; however, there's a central resource on to start with.

This is a collection of some of those scripts on a purely subjective and biased basis. Users can thus have some nice scripts without having to go searching. The scripts can be installed globally or on a per user basis. Here is a summary of the included scripts:
