Airline & Themes

Airline displays a more user-friendly status bar in Vim, and with a nice color scheme, it's a lot more fun to work with.

Project address

  • Airline

  • Airline Themes


Add .vimrc configuration.

" Install both plugins at the same time
Plug 'vim-airline/vim-airline' | Plug 'vim-airline/vim-airline-themes'

Execute :source ~/.vimrc in Vim to reload the config file.

Execute :PlugInstall to install the Airline and Aairline Themes plugins.

Add the following setting to .vimrc to make Airline effective.

``vim set laststatus=2 " Always show status bar

" Airline let g:airline#extensions#tabline#enabled=1 " enable tab bar

> Reload the config file to make it work, if that doesn't work try restarting Vim

You should now see a status bar displayed underneath Vim, displaying information that will typically contain **Current Mode**, **Current File**, **Current File**, **Current File**, **Current File**, and **Current File**.
**Current File**, **File Type**, **File Encoding**, and **Current Column Information**.

Since we also have the Airline Themes plugin installed, we can set the Airline style as follows.

> Execute `:AirlineTheme simple` to apply the `simple` style, or modify the `.vimrc` file to add a file like
> The following configuration:

let g:airline_theme='simple'

Airline Themes contains a large number of styles, which can be found in the project's Styles folder The styles listed there can be applied.
