=============================
Simple Vim templates plugin
=============================
:Author: Adrian Perez

This is a simple plugin for Vim that will allow you to have a set of
templates for certain file types. It is useful to add boilerplate code
like guards in C/C++ headers, or license disclaimers.


Installation
============

The easiest way to install the plugin is to install it as a bundle.
For example, using Pathogen__:

1. Get and install `pathogen.vim `_. You can skip this step
if you already have it installed.

2. ``cd ~/.vim/bundle``

3. ``git clone git://github.com/aperezdc/vim-template.git``

Bundle installs are known to work fine also when using Vundle__. Other
bundle managers are expected to work as well.

.. important:: If you use Fish__ as your shell, you *will* need to add
``set shell=/bin/sh`` to your ``~/.vimrc`` — the plugin relies on the
setting pointing to a Bourne-compatible__ shell.

Documentation
=============

The documentation can be browsed directly in Vim::

:help template.txt

Alternatively, you can also `read it in your browser`__.

Updating
========

Manually
--------

In order to update the plugin, go to its bundle directory and use
Git to update it:

1. ``cd ~/.vim/bundle/vim-template``

2. ``git pull``


With Vundle
-----------

Use the ``:BundleUpdate`` command provided by Vundle, for example invoking
Vim like this::

% vim +BundleUpdate
