Vundle - no more vim plugins as git submodules

TL;DR

What
Vundle is a bundler for vim

Before
https://github.com/fsproru/dotfiles/tree/master/vim/bundle

After
https://github.com/fsproru/vimfiles/tree/master/bundle

How
in .vimrc

Bundle 'tpope/vim-fugitive'

inside vim :BundleInstall
or
from command line: vim +BundleInstall +qall

Long Version

I used Tim Pope's Pathoden plugin for a long time to manage my vim plugins and I had to add each plugin as a git submodule. So my .vim/bundle directory looked like this https://github.com/fsproru/dotfiles/tree/master/vim/bundle

Vundle plugin shrinked it down to
https://github.com/fsproru/vimfiles/tree/master/bundle

With Vundle, all you need is to add your plugin to .vimrc

Bundle 'tpope/vim-fugitive'

Run :BundleInstall inside vim or vim +BundleInstall +qall from command line and Vundle will do the rest

Vundle is indeed a must have for any vim user. To update all your plugins type :BundleInstall!
