The Vim editor allows you to modify its behavior via scripts, and the Vim community has produced hundreds of scripts that may help you be more productive, or add functions to Vim that you’ve always wished it would have. Here are five that I find particularly useful.
To install most scripts, copy them to your ~/.vim/plugins directory and restart Vim. Each script should (and usually does) have instructions on installing it, so check the script’s page for additional directions.
