The plugin provides several commands to manage named bookmarks. This is similar to what you'd do with persistent marks, but brings the benefit of longer, more rememberable names.
Here's an example:
This will store a bookmark called "here" in the file "~/.vim_bookmarks" (changeable through a setting). To jump to the mark, use :GotoBookmark
This will open the ~/.vimrc file and jump to the third line. The column is saved as well.
To delete the bookmark, use:
Both :GotoBookmark and :DelBookmark are tab-completed with all known bookmarks.
The command :CopenBookmarks will load all marks in the quickfix window for easier navigating.
Note that bookmarks should be synchronized between vim instances. Anytime you add a mark in one vim instance, it should be available in all others. In practice, this is achieved by simply reading and writing the whole file on each update. I have yet to experiment to find out if there are any performance issues or race conditions. If you find any issues, please open a bug report on github: https://github.com/AndrewRadev/simple_bookmarks.vim/issues
|There are several ways to install the plugin. The recommended one is by using Tim Pope's pathogen (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2332). In that case, you can clone the plugin's git repository like so:
git clone git://github.com/AndrewRadev/simple_bookmarks.vim.git ~/.vim/bundle/simple_bookmarks
If your vim configuration is under git version control, you could also set up the repository as a submodule, which would allow you to update more easily. The command is (provided you're in ~/.vim):
git submodule add git://github.com/AndrewRadev/simple_bookmarks.vim.git bundle/simple_bookmarks
Another way is to simply copy all the essential directories inside the ~/.vim directory: plugin, autoload, doc.
