you need to set tabstop=8 otherwise people set tabstops and then use :retab to turn tabs into non-8 char tabs

Replace the 2 filetype lines with:
filetype plugin indent on

Tested and works fine.

You should also probably force indentation to 2-spaces (on my machine "vimgolf put" has it set to 1-tab)
set shiftwidth=2

@vincentisambart i don't think you do want to set shiftwidth. With the setting I said, the proper file settings will be picked up from vim.

@bishboria, @vincentisambart: went back and forth on this earlier and decided to strip out any/all customizations to do with tabbing, spacing, etc. This is a touchy subject for many VIM users, hence opted out for the VIM defaults, to be fair to everyone.

We'll add some extra logic + language to the challenge create page to get the creators of challenges to take this into account.

@bishboria: thanks for tip, will update.

Any chance of making those filetype changes soon?

@bishboria: the config above have been life for a few days now! unless something is not picking up the differences...?

Hmm. I'm still not picking up the correct indentation rules... I'll need to investigate my vim setup. Thanks again.

How about set encoding=utf-8? I needed to type this manually for this golf: http://www.vimgolf.com/challenges/4d1da368de2f897c2a000114 Or am I missing something here?

Hmm, is your shell (whatever you use, bash, etc) set to UTF-8? If so, vim should pick it up automatically.

@igrigorik: I’m using iTerm 2 on Mac OS X, and I have ProfilesMy ProfileTerminalCharacter Encoding set to “Unicode (UTF-8)”. Not sure what else I need to do.

Edit: In Terminal.app it works fine. Any ideas?

set relativenumber is always convenient. I don't think vimgolf is about manual counting, anyways.

Hello,
I think, it would be better not to set ignorecase in vimgolf vimrc. There are challenge like : http://vimgolf.com/challenges/51b4e3b920faf70002000001 when it needs to search o and not O. That have to work like fo keystrokes. I have a solution, this:

   ?o\C<NL>qz0<C-A>nq12@z?r<NL>18@z?i<NL>16@z-<C-A>ZZ 

that needs 2 additional keys, the \ key and C key to specify lowercase for back search ? command to search o and not O
Best regards !

Should we set nowrap? Otherwise, I could, for example, resize my terminal window and do 5gj to go down five display lines so I end up in the right column of a line three lines down in three keystrokes where it might otherwise take four.
