statline : Improved Vim statusline

I switched to Vim a few months ago and been reading other peoples’ settings and trying to customize it to my needs since then. Yesterday I couldn’t sleep so I decided to write my first simple “plugin” (not really a plugin, just a few settings..), it adds some cool/useful features to the vim statusline.

Here is a basic screenshot:

One of the advantages is that it adapts to the color scheme without needing any extra settings (but you can customize it easily if needed). The source code have enough comments and is split into individual blocks making it easy to add/remove things if you need. It also checks for trailing white spaces and mixed indention. (optional)

For more info check the project repository on Github and read the documentation. Please report bugs and feature requests though github issues.

That’s it!

This is great! Can I make a feature request, for those of us who use Vim for writing plain text? A live-updating word count would be fantastic.

Hi Eater, I added the feature request to the issues list, thanks!
