Comment stuff out. Use gcc to comment out a line (takes a count), gc to comment out the target of a motion (for example, gcap to comment out a paragraph), gc in visual mode to comment out the selection, and gc in operator pending mode to target a comment. You can also use it as a command, either with a range like :7,17Commentary, or as part of a :global invocation like with :g/TODO/Commentary. That's it.

I wrote this because 5 years after Vim added support for mapping an operator, I still couldn't find a commenting plugin that leveraged that feature (I overlooked tcomment.vim). Striving for minimalism, it weighs in at under 100 lines of code.

Oh, and it uncomments, too. The above maps actually toggle, and gcgc uncomments a set of adjacent commented lines.


Install using your favorite package manager, or use Vim's built-in package support:

mkdir -p ~/.vim/pack/tpope/start
cd ~/.vim/pack/tpope/start
git clone https://tpope.io/vim/commentary.git
vim -u NONE -c "helptags commentary/doc" -c q


My favorite file type isn't supported!

Relax! You just have to adjust 'commentstring':

autocmd FileType apache setlocal commentstring=#\ %s
