Tips – Using janus to manage your Vim settings.

What is janus?

From janus‘s official Github page:

This is a distribution of plug-ins and mappings for Vim, Gvim and MacVim.

Just as it statement says, it packaged some popular plug-ins and mapping for you, so you can to use a full featured Vim after you installed Vim(If you are using Mac and Lion+, that means you just need to run a command and start to use a luxury Vim).

If you are in a rush, just copy the line below and paste to your terminal.

 $ curl -Lo- http://bit.ly/janus-bootstrap | bash  

Why bothering janus?

There are many famous plug-ins for Vim. But searching and installing plugins could be a painful work.

Usually, you google it, then go to vim.org to download it, then you config it and use it. This process is fine for one plugin, what if you want to install the top 10 vim plugins for coder, what if you want to install another 10 popular plugins?

For me, I can’t go through this process again and again. Don’t even think about the weird errors popped out when you installing your plugins.

What’s the merit I can get?

With janus, all you need to know is run a command and then use it. Oh, maybe you still need to remember some command for the plugins.

Where to start?

If you have enough patient to read to here, I suggest you to take a look at janus’s Github page.

What? you just want to use it? OK, open your terminal and paste the code below.

 $ curl -Lo- http://bit.ly/janus-bootstrap | bash  

Good luck!
