script type
Plugin was completely re-written in python. Below you have video presentation of
plugin showing difference in Vim recovery with and without Reco plugin.

In youtube set video quality 720p
Sometimes first 10s of video is in lower resolution even with 720p quality, but rest of video is fine so don't give up

See reco docs for more details

install details
You can source Reco directly from .vimrc as you can see in video
Or use any plugin manager i.e pathogen
Only setting you probably would like to change is backup_dir
Set in .vimrc
py reco.backup_dir=<your new dir> #default is your home folder
or you  can change path in reco.vim
