vim pasting without making a mess

If you have auto-indenting enabled in vim, you probably know what a mess you get when you paste a block of code in it. Luckily, vim has something called paste mode :

  • before pasting : :set paste
  • after pasting : :set nopaste

don't forget to set this on a key in your .vimrc:

set pastetoggle=<F2>
