I prefer the tags to have a full height window off to the right, most of the time. This script and mappings give both.
" preview window... to get it to open vert right, or horiz as desired function PreviewTag(top) "by MW set previewheight=25 exe "silent! pclose" if &previewwindow " don't do this in the preview window return endif let w = expand("<cword>") " get the word under cursor exe "ptjump " . w " if any non False arg, open in simple horiz window so simply return if a:top return endif " otherwise, make it vertical exe "silent! wincmd P" if &previewwindow " if we really get there... if has("folding") silent! .foldopen " don't want a closed fold endif wincmd L " move preview window to the left wincmd p " back to caller if !&previewwindow " got back wincmd _ " make caller full size (I use minibufexplorer and for some reason " the window is altered by the preview window split and manipulation " so wincmd _ sets it back... your mileage may vary endif endif endfunction " right hand window full height preview window inoremap <C-]> <Esc>:call PreviewTag(0)<CR> nnoremap <C-]> :call PreviewTag(0)<CR> " simple "above the caller" preview window, nnoremap <M-]> :call PreviewTag(1)<CR> inoremap <M-]> <Esc>:call PreviewTag(1)<CR> " close preview noremap <M-[> <Esc>:pc<CR>
Here's what I use for Python and Quixote (python web framework) exctags generation (FreeBSD user here) - ptl files are Quixote Python Template Language files, essentially Python, and this exctags cmd line builds an appropriate tags file:
function WritePythonTags() let foo = system("/usr/bin/ctags --langmap=python:.py.ptl *.py *.ptl") endfunction " attempt to write / update tags file on every save... " better way? not sure I care, its fast enuf. au BufWritePost *.py,*.ptl call WritePythonTags()
See script#1343 to automatically update tags files upon saving.
