This question is an exact duplicate of:
I am using
vi as a note-taking and outlining tool and therefore I thought that this stackexchange site would be appropriate to ask this question. I am constructing the "tags" file by myself. What I would like to do is that when I open my notes or
outline file, vi reads the tags present in this file, highlights them and also displays the tag labels in a vertical preview window. I have no experience
in vim scripting so I would appreciate some help.
Currently I am using a bash script to generate a tag labels file
cut and loading it in a separate vertical window
My script looks like this
#! /bin/bash cut -f1 $PWD/tags > $PWD/taglabels vi -c ":30vsp $PWD/taglabels" $1
As is obvious, the script does not highlight the tags present in the file nor does it show only the tags present in the file. On the contrary it shows
all the tags present in
I looked into
ctags and the
taglist plugin but they seem to be more suited for code than for free-form text.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve on this scenario I would be grateful.
