Use this page to discuss script 2332 Pathogen: easy manipulation of runtimepath, path, tags, etc.

  • Add constructive comments, bug reports, or discuss improvements (see the guideline).
  • Do not document the script here (the author should do that on vim.org).
  • This page may be out of date: check the script's vim.org page above, and its release notes.

Pathogen is a plugin-manager.

Manage your 'runtimepath' with ease. In practical terms, pathogen.vim makes it super easy to install plugins and runtime files in their own private directories.

CommentsEdit

This plugin seems really very good. But does it work with vimballs? In other words how does pathogen manage plugins installed by vimball, if at all? --May 27, 2011

There are instructions about UseVimball on http://github.com/tpope/vim-pathogen. --July 19, 2012

The directions to use curl given on this page did not work for me (I just get a bunch of html on the command line). The directions on github.com/tpope/ work fine. When I have time to figure out curl I'll determine what I did wrong. Until then:

mkdir -p ~/.vim/autoload ~/.vim/bundle
curl -so ~/.vim/autoload/pathogen.vim \
    https://raw.github.com/tpope/vim-pathogen/HEAD/autoload/pathogen.vim

I made a small tweak to your post (no need for "; \" on the first line). The instructions given on the script page do work. JohnBeckett 06:53, March 5, 2012 (UTC)

A comment was posted July 23, 2014 with a link using a redirector. I don't think that is a good idea because while it possibly works now, no one can know what a redirector is doing. This page is for users of the script to comment on it, and we should not second-guess the documentation. If the person who posted the comment (which I have removed) wants, perhaps explain why a redirector is needed. Presumably the URL in the 2012 comment above was taken from documentation at the time (although the removed comment states it is now wrong), and adding more URLs here is not going to help. Let's point to the documentation page. JohnBeckett (talk) 06:04, July 28, 2014 (UTC)
