script type
The ruted-vim plugin is part of √𝚎𝚍, the rich Unicode text editing (RUTED, pronounced ˈruːtɪd) suite. Ruted-vim allows you to enter Unicode symbols easily in Vim. For example, to enter "⇒" while in Vim insert mode, you switch to the arrow symbol mode and type =>. Ruted-vim automatically replaces "=>" by "⇒".  Ruted-vim uses ruted-format (https://gitlab.com/ruted/ruted-format) as the source for the available symbol modes and their replacement rules.
install details
Install ruted-vim like any other Vim plugin. If you use Vim's help system, you can also install the accompanying help file.  This help file
contains the same information as README.md file in ruted-vim's GitLab repository at https://gitlab.com/ruted/ruted-vim.

Ruted-vim has two prerequisites:

1. Ruted-vim uses the program ruted-format (https://gitlab.com/ruted/ruted-format). Install it before you install ruted-vim.
2. To render the Unicode symbols you enter in Vim, you need a Unicode font that support these symbols. You find fairly complete Unicode fonts on most modern operating systems, but you can also install new ones. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_Unicode_typefaces for a list of open-source Unicode fonts.
