Greetings upcasers & thoughtbotters!
I was wondering did any of you had any performance issues with Vim (terminal MacVim) + tmux + iterm?
I’m experiencing some pretty noticeable lag when using vim in iTerm. This also drew me to start using gui macvim, but I miss the whole terminal (development) environment. I recently went all in on experimenting with my vimrc, but no matter what I do I can’t improve vim’s responsiveness. It’s still quite slow.
I reduced my config and plugins list as much as I could, went through dozens of “vim optimization” blog posts, and still, nothing helped.
What stuns me even more is the fact that in every upcase/thoughtbot video everyone are using vim in terminal without any issues at all.
Not to mention @christoomey 's dotfiles which are huge, and still, every video shows him “flying” through all the vim’s magic with no lag/delay/slowness whatsoever.
Another thing that makes me wonder where I went wrong with my configs is that this issue keeps me haunting on multiple mbp machines (mid-2014 13" and mid-2015 15" - both standard ones)
So, I present you with my vimrc, vim boot time log and tmux config:
iTerm2 Build 2.1.4
OSX 10.11.1 (El Capitan)
Apologies in advance for somewhat not-nicely formatted .vimrc, this is the result of long experimenting.
Big thanks to anyone could provide me with any useful info, no matter how small…
