HOWTO: Try out the latest version of SnippetsEmu
After teasing you all with the great new things available in the TextMate branch it was pointed out that maybe it wasn't entirely obvious how to go about trying it out for yourself.
What follows is a description of my current set up. It works for me and works well but YMMV, IANAL, ROFL, WYSIWYG.
Firstly, remove (or backup to elsewhere) your current snippetsEmu installation. This will mean moving the plugin itself (in 'plugin'), the documentation (in 'doc') and the bundles (in 'after/ftplugin').
Download an install Subversion
. Check that you can get this working on your appropriate command line.
Create a directory outside of your current Vim installation. This is just to ensure we don't break anything by accident.
Checkout the latest version of the TextMate branch:
svn checkout http://snippetsemu.googlecode.com/svn/branches/textmateOnly/ Your_new_directory
Open up your vimrc and add in the new directories:
Note that you need to add the 'after' directory or the bundles won't get picked up.
That's it. Restart Vim and everything should work.
Make sure you submit any bugs you find!
