Add assistant/search plugin for VIM
Last modified: 2008-10-28 13:50:22 UTC
I've written a VIM plugin for devhelp. It updates the devhelp assistant window while you are typing and can launch 'devhelp -s' when a certain key is pressed.

The VIM plugin
This is the plugin. It has one small bug which I couldn't figure out. When you press F7 in insert mode at the beginning of a line, the cursor will be moved to the right. Pressing F7 in all other columns works though. I think that's a minor issue that can be fixed later.

Improved, configurable version of the plugin
This is an improved version of the plugin. The plugin is more configurable in .vimrc now.
To enable devhelp search:
To enable devhelp assistant:
To change the update delay (e.g. to 150ms):
To change the search key (e.g. to F5):
let g:devhelpSearchKey = '<F5>'
To change the length (e.g. to 5 characters) before a word becomes relevant:
let g:devhelpWordLength = 5
Thanks! Committed to trunk.
