How To · Vim

Installing a Vimball Plugin (with .vba extension)

Open the vba file with vim, and type the

 :source % 

command right there. The % refers to the current file, so using :source % while having a file open in vim is telling it to run the file in the context of vim, which in the case of vba files, is installing it in the proper directories.

Shorter syntax

 :so %
