|This plugin contains a shell implementation of a pager, that will take the input and send it to a vim plugin. The Vim plugin processes the input and stores it in a new window.
See also the following screencast: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chrisbra/vpager/master/vpager.gif
This makes use of Vims built in terminal and the provided terminal API. You need at least Vim version 8.0.1647
Use the provided vpager shell script and pipe input into it. I suggest to put it into your $PATH, to be easily available.
The script supports the following options:
This script vpager can be used as pager from inside Vims built-in
terminal. The output will be copied to a new buffer in Vim.
vpager [-n -C option]
-v display version
-h display help
-C Pass options to Vim. Can be used to e.g. set the filetype for
correct syntax highlighting.
-n Clear the previous buffer in Vim
-V create a new vertical window in Vim
git diff | vpager -nC 'ft=diff'
Copies the output of git diff into a buffer inside Vim. Any previous
output in the buffer will be cleared and the filetype will be set
to "diff", for proper syntax highlighting.
