Over the holidays I switched from Vundle
to vim-plug as my plugin manager for
Vim. While I didn’t run in to any noticeable bugs with
Vundle I like the on-demand loading that vim-plug has to offer. That means
that you can configure your plugins like this in you
on loads the plugin when you execute the command for the first time while
for loads it whenever you open a file with the
filetype in question.
After switching out a couple of lines in my
.vimrc and adding some
on’s Vim’s startup time decreased with about 100-150 milliseconds on my main
machine and 250-300 milliseconds on my old netbook1. That doesn’t
sound like a lot but I can definitively feel it, so to speak.
Launch Vim with
--startuptime startup.logto try it for yourself. ↩
