A simple mapping to quickly set up a couple of VTreeExplorer and TagList in the left side of your Vim window. Add the following to your vimrc:

map <F12> <Esc>:Tlist<CR><C-W>h<C-W>s:VTreeExplore<CR>:set nonu<CR><C-W>l

The mapping does the following:

  • Opens the TagList (opens left by default).
  • Switches to the TagList window and splits it.
  • Opens VTreeExplorer in the split window.
  • Turns of line numbering in the VTreeExplorer.
  • Switches back to the window where you started.


Not sure if Tlist and VTreeExplore can be used with |, but consider (untested):

map <F12> <Esc>:Tlist <Bar> wincmd h <Bar> wincmd s <Bar> VTreeExplore <Bar> set nonu <Bar> wincmd l<CR>

:help :wincmd

Also consider using 'nnoremap' and 'inoremap' and possibly 'vnoremap' rather than just 'map'.
