    TeX-9 is a ftplugin that aims to enhance the writing experience of high
    quality documents with LaTeX and Vim. The goal of TeX-9 is to be simple
    and Vimish, meaning that focus is on carefully thought-out key mappings
    and features that are already present in a typical Vim installation. If
    you need to write a thesis or research articles and insist on having only
    one editor for all editing tasks, then TeX-9 is for you!

    TeX-9 uses Python2.x as its backend and therefore a Vim installation with
    Python support is required. TeX-9 is being developed on Linux running
    Vim 7.4.

     The main features of TeX-9 are
        * Compile, debug and launch a document viewer from within Vim
        * Insert LaTeX code snippets with ease
        * Powerful text-object for LaTeX environments
        * Omni-completion of BibTeX database entries and label references
        * Omni-completion of mathematical symbols
        * SyncTeX support (for the Evince document viewer)
        * Filetype specific indentation (courtesy of Johannes Tanzler)
        * LaTeX2e manual (ported to Vim by Mikolaj Machowski)
        * No-hassle settings, relatively few mappings

install details
       The good method
         * Use the pathogen plugin (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2332)
         * Clone TeX-9 from GitHub (https://github.com/vim-scripts/TeX-9)
         * Run :Helptags and read the help on 'tex_nine'
         * If you like TeX-9, show it on this page...it would make me happy.
         The traditional method
        * Unzip the tarball to your local Vim tree (tar xaf tex_nine-<version>.tar.gz; rsync -avz tex_nine-<version>/ ~/.vim/)
        * Update helptags (:helptags ~/.vim/doc/)
        * Read the help on TeX-9 (:help tex_nine)
