script type
Note: This plugin is deprecated. I personally recommend use vimscript #4358 instead.


Original plugin: vimscript #3041

Fixed some bugs and add CJK and Python 3 support.

Here's my script compared to other alternatives:

vimscript #3777: RST Tables (CJK)
This script used gbk to encode the text, may not work with some language.
My script used unicode, should works for any language.

vimscript #3450: RST Tables
This script doesn't support python 3.

This plugin allows to create and edit restructuredText tables easily.

Its adds two new commands (<Leader> is "\" by default):

    <Leader><Leader>c  ->  Creates a new restructuredText table.
    <Leader><Leader>f  ->  Fix table columns in a table.

For example, if you have a paragraph with data like this:

nombre      apellido    edad
pepe        zarate      28
toto        garcia      29

Also, you could use "|" as delimiter:


you can press "\\c" to create a simple table:

    | nombre | apellido | edad |
    | pepe   | zarate   | 28   |
    | toto   | garcia   | 29   |

Now, if you change the table content, for example adding characters
to the first content row.

    | nombre | apellido | edad |
    | Un nombre muy largo que rompe la tabla   | zarate   | 28   |
    | toto   | un appellido largo...   | 29   |

you need to fix the columns widths. So, press "\\f" and you will gets:

    | nombre                                 | apellido              | edad |
    | Un nombre muy largo que rompe la tabla | zarate                | 28   |
    | toto                                   | un appellido largo... | 29   |
