changelog.vim   [plain text]


" Vim filetype plugin file
" Language:         generic Changelog file
" Maintainer:       Nikolai Weibull <now@bitwi.se>
" Latest Revision:  2007-05-21
" Variables:
"   g:changelog_timeformat (deprecated: use g:changelog_dateformat instead) -
"       description: the timeformat used in ChangeLog entries.
"       default: "%Y-%m-%d".
"   g:changelog_dateformat -
"       description: the format sent to strftime() to generate a date string.
"       default: "%Y-%m-%d".
"   g:changelog_username -
"       description: the username to use in ChangeLog entries
"       default: try to deduce it from environment variables and system files.
" Local Mappings:
"   <Leader>o -
"       adds a new changelog entry for the current user for the current date.
" Global Mappings:
"   <Leader>o -
"       switches to the ChangeLog buffer opened for the current directory, or
"       opens it in a new buffer if it exists in the current directory.  Then
"       it does the same as the local <Leader>o described above.
" Notes:
"   run 'runtime ftplugin/changelog.vim' to enable the global mapping for
"   changelog files.
" TODO:
"  should we perhaps open the ChangeLog file even if it doesn't exist already?
"  Problem is that you might end up with ChangeLog files all over the place.

" If 'filetype' isn't "changelog", we must have been to add ChangeLog opener
