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.
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)
