Nothing fancy here (Except the strange name), vullScreen is a small vim plugin that allows you to toggle Vim in full-screen mode on GNU/Linux.

I'm talking about a real full-screen mode, no menu and no toolbars as shown in the following gif.

To get the last version or to have more informations check the github repo > https://github.com/KabbAmine/vullScreen.vim
Don't forget to rate it if you find it useful ( Or useless ;) ).

How to use?
With the command:


Or using the key `<F11>` in both *NORMAL* and *INSERT* mode.

Why F11?
Because its nice and common to a lot of programs, but if you want to change it to something else simply add to your `vimrc`:
    let g:vullscreen_key = '<SOMETHING ELSE>'

You don't really need this plugin if you're using Vim on a terminal (The full-screen option is included in most graphical terminals).
install details
VullScreen requires wmctrl (http://tomas.styblo.name/wmctrl/), the program is present in the default repositories of most GNU/Linux distributions, so install it using your preferred packet manager.

Then, use your preferred method to install the plugin, I recommend using a vim plugin manager:

* Vim-plug (https://github.com/junegunn/vim-plug)
    In your vimrc: Plug 'KabbAmine/vullScreen.vim'
    :so %

* Vundle (https://github.com/gmarik/Vundle.vim)
    In your vimrc: Plugin 'KabbAmine/vullScreen.vim'
    :so %
