Using rails.vim

Installing rails.vim is about the same as installing any other Vim script.

  1. Locate your vimfiles directory. On Windows, this is C:\Documents and Settings\your username\vimfiles or on Linux or OS X ~/.vim.
  2. Extract the zip file downloaded from the rails.vim download page into this directory. Be sure to preserve the directory structure.
  3. Start Vim in your Rails project directory.
  4. To load rails.vim's help files, run the command :helptags ~/.vim/doc on Linux or OS X, or :helptags ~/vimfiles/doc on Windows.
  5. To access the rails.vim help file, run the command :help rails.
