I am new to VIM. I have just started with ‘Indenting’ in ‘Art of VIM’ course. I started with a simple file
And followed the instructions from video. But nothing is working as expected.
Am I missing some basic configurations which is required for the ‘Art of VIM’ course ?
I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on 64 bits.
I need to go back and re-watch those videos myself. A couple questions:
Are you using the preinstalled vim.tiny or have you installed the full version of vim? (http://youtu.be/ReTvvIPmS34)
What specific commands are you attempting to use?
Have you installed any plugins or done any dotfile configuration?
I have full version of vim installed
ubuntu@devel:~$ dpkg -l vim

I am trying to indent an un indented ruby file by using ‘==’ command on each line. The lines are not getting indented as shown in the tutorial.
I have not installed any plugins or dot file.
In fact I didn’t find any tutorial or instructions in the course to setup vim.
Thanks & Regards
Can you post the contents of your
~/.vimrc to a gist?
I suspect that you either have
= mapped incorrectly or your tabstop/shiftwidth/etc settings are off, so Vim doesn’t know how to indent.
If you want syntax highlighting and indentation, here are the minimal commands you’ll need in your
" Allow extensions made to Vi by Vim
" Use syntax-based color highlighting
" Enable plugins based on file type, including indentation
filetype plugin indent on
