script type

- g:shoot_zoom_factor - Used to zoom image (default: 2)

GitHub repo: https://github.com/JMcKiern/vim-shoot
install details

- Vim compiled with python3 support (check this with :echo has('python3'))
- Python 3
- Chrome or Firefox (a browser based on either of these should work too)


After downloading the plugin, run the install.py script in the plugin's directory. It must take an argument specifying the webdriver to use:
For Chromium-based browsers:
  ./install.py chromedriver
For Firefox-based browsers:
  ./install.py geckodriver

This script does two things. First, it installs the selenium and requests packages. Second, it downloads the appropriate binary for the specified webdriver. These are all isolated to the plugin's local directory.
