Vim-empty-lines layer

Table of ContentsClose

1. Description

This layer is a drop-in replacement for the vi-tilde-fringe mode, for those who desire behaviour closer to vim's.

It has better compatibility with retina displays, as it uses a text overlay using your font, rather than a pixel-art tilde. The empty line indicators are overlaid in within the buffer as in vim, and not in the fringe. The indicator behaviour with trailing empty lines matches vim's behaviour.

For details, see the vim-empty-lines-mode repository.

1.1. Features:

  • Emulation of original vim behaviour.
  • Brings you as close to vim as one can be without using vim itself.

2. Install

To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You will need to add vim-empty-lines to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in this file.
