The Vim Airline Plugin is a colorful status line for Vim.
We use the VimPlug plugin manager installed in Vim (41).
We get the lines we need to type in from vimawesome.com and we install the vim-airline plugin by typing PlugInstall.
The vim-airline plugin is installed, but we don't see any colors.
To see the colors we add a line to our .vimrc file:
To get the arrows to show, we need to turn on the powerline fonts with:
let g:airline_powerline_fonts = 1
To get install the proper fonts we go to the vim-airline git-hub page and click the link or the font powerline fonts that we download and install.
Doing all that completes the installation of the vim-airline plugin.
