This .vimrc is designed to work with MacVim, but works pretty well with vanilla Vim too.

It was inspired by Janus and YADR. I decided to maintain my own .vimrc instead of using these great tools once I understood how YADR was using Vundle it to manage customizations (and saw that it wasn't that complex).

When you add a Vundle to the .vimrc, you do:

vim +BundleInstall +qall

You can debug where key mappings are coming from via:

:verbose map [keycombo]
:map [keycombo]

Hi! first of all thank you for this file.
Some parts wasn't working for me so I have to make some changes,
I replaced Bundle "xxx" with Plugin 'xxx'
Thats it, I followed this instructions:

Might I make a suggestion in the General section for opening a file at the same line a user closes it at?

Also, at line 96, the details for installing Vundle suggest changing this to mock the Vundle documentation. The documentation reads:

Set up Vundle:

git clone ~/.vim/bundle/Vundle.vim
