I am just starting to make the Textmate to Vim switch. I love it, but it's so ugly.
I'm running Mac OS X Lion and needed Ruby support so I am using Vim 7.3 as installed via Homebrew not the Vim Lion ships with.
Then I see Corey Haines doing his fast specs talk and his Vim is... it's just gorgeous. http://confreaks.net/videos/641-gogaruco2011-fast-rails-tests
I look at his GitHub dotfiles, there's a note to use a repo called Vimlander2 the quickening. Following the instructions there and I have a different looking but still ugly Vim. https://github.com/spicycode/Vimlander-2-The-Quickening
I am brand new to Vim so there's probably something silly I'm missing-- I upgraded to Lion specifically because the terminal could handle the colors, but something is still off.
I am getting better and better with Vim everyday and am really liking it, but I opened Textmate the other day to do a project wide search and, well I was swayed briefly by the beauty just before I caught myself typing :wq
I would really appreciate your Vim beauty tips--thanks!
