vim-registry - syntax for vim-addons registry files SYNOPSIS
A registry file is a multi-document YAML file (i.e. it can be composed by several different YAML documents separated by "---" lines). Each YAML document represents a registry entry, that is the information describing a single addon. Ideally, the registry directory contains one file per package shipping addons; with a filename obeying to the convention PACKAGE-NAME.yaml. Hence a single package can contribute to the registry with multiple entries described in a single YAML file. For example, the "vim-scripts" package should ship a single /usr/share/vim/registry/vim-scripts.yaml file, containing one YAML document per shipped addon. The first lines of such file can look like the following: addon: alternate description: "alternate pairing files (e.g. .c/.h) with short ex-commands" basedir: /usr/share/vim-scripts/ disabledby: "let loaded_alternateFile = 1" files: - plugin/a.vim - doc/alternate.txt --- addon: whatdomain description: "query the meaning of a Top Level Domain" basedir: /usr/share/vim-scripts/ disabledby: "let loaded_whatdomain = 1" files: - plugin/whatdomain.vim --- Each registry entry may contain the following fields, to be typeset according to the YAML specification: addon (Required) Name of the addon. description (Required) Human understandable textual description of the addon. files (Required) List of the files which compose the addon and are required to be present in a component of the Vim runtime path for the addon to be enabled. Each file is specified relative to a component of the Vim runtime path. basedir (Optional) Directory where the files shipped by the addon (i.e., where the symlinks of the user/sysadm should point to) reside on the filesys- tem. Default is /usr/share/vim/addons. disabledby (Optional) Vim script command that can be used (usually by adding it to ~/.vimrc) to prevent the addon from being used even when it is installed. The intended usage of this field is to "blacklist" an undesired addon whose files are available, and hence automatically loaded by Vim, in a component of the Vim runtime path. AUTHOR
