This project contains Vim's runtime files for ruby support. This includes syntax highlighting, indentation, omnicompletion, and various useful tools and mappings.


See the file INSTALL.markdown for instructions.

Ideally, vim-ruby should work "correctly" for you out of the box. However, ruby developers have varying preferences, so there are settings that control some of the details. You can get more information on these by using the native :help command:


If you have an issue or a feature request, it's recommended to use the github issue tracker: https://github.com/vim-ruby/vim-ruby/issues. Try the search box to look for an existing issue -- it might have already been reported.

If you don't have a github account or would rather contact us in a different way, you can find emails for individual maintainers in the CONTRIBUTORS file. They're also in the comment headers of the project's Vimscript files (syntax/ruby.vim, indent/ruby.vim, etc) under the label "Maintainer".

If you're not sure who the most relevant person to contact is for your particular issue, you can send an email to the release coordinator, Doug Kearns (dougkearns at gmail.com).


Vim-ruby is a mature project, which is one way of saying it moves slowly and it can be a bit difficult to modify. It's far from impossible, but be warned that issues and PRs may take time to be handled. Partly, it's because we don't want to risk breaking Vim's core ruby support, partly because it takes a lot of time and energy to debug and fix things.

Contributing a fix for an issue would be very appreciated, even if it's a proof-of-concept to start a conversation. Be warned that we're definitely going to be conservative when considering changes to vim-ruby.

The code is tested using RSpec and Vimrunner. The tests are not exhaustive, but they should cover a wide variety of cases.

Project history

This project began in July 2003, when the current version of Vim was 6.2. It was migrated from CVS in August, 2008.
