My .vimrc file

Thanks to Evan Klitzke and others at Yelp; a lot of this is ripped from their .vimrc's. All hail vim!

set encoding=utf-8 " Use UTF-8 (8-bit variable width Unicode)

" UI stuff
set showmatch " Show matching parens as they come up
set ruler " Show the column number in the status bar
set incsearch " Find as you type
set lz " Don't redraw the screen in the middle of executing macros
set nohlsearch " Highlighting search terms is _really_ annoying

" Make our folds look like how they were when we exited vim last time.

\ let b:doopenfold = 1 |
\ endif |
\ endif
" Need to postpone using "zv" until after reading the modelines

set mouse=a " Have mouse operate in all modes -- disable mouse by holding the shift key

" Set 'nottyfast' for slow SSH connections.
set history=50
set showmode " show what mode (e.g. INSERT) you're in
set showcmd " Show (partial) command in status line
set backspace=indent,eol,start " explicitly makes the backspace work when at the beginning of a line

Or, say you want soft tabs instead of hard ones (see converting tabs to spaces):
set expandtab     "soft tabs
set tabstop=2 "set tabstops
set shiftwidth=2 "set shiftwidth
set softtabstop=2 "delete this many spaces upon deleting soft tab

More stuff from Rajiv:

set directory=/var/tmp,/tmp " put all the backup stuff in tmp directories
set shortmess+=A " no swap file complaints
set nobackup " don't litter directories with swap files

" move across rows, not lines
noremap j gj
noremap k gk
noremap gk k
noremap gj j

set display=lastline " ??????????????
syntax sync fromstart " always render syntax from the beginning of the file
au! BufRead,BufNewFile * lcd %:p:h " cd into the directory of the file you're editing
set vb t_vb= " no visual bell
