Vim Tricks

I wanted to try a decent IDE to browse the source code for huge projects, like the Linux Kernel, but did not find any. I was happy with Vim + cscope vim plugin. But now the same requirement arose for a large C++ project. C++ source browsing is no fun, nevertheless I asked a colleague of mine and found that he is also in the same boat – not satisfied with existing IDEs for Linux. He is also a power user for Vim, so he shared the following link:

And it contains some amazing plugins. I liked the FixWhiteSpace, and Unite the most. Grepping the code with “ag” is also fun (especially when cscope gives up in finding C++ symbols). Worth a try guys!
