Loupe 0.1 released

Loupe is a small Vim plug-in that I just extracted from my dotfiles.

It enhances the in-file search experience in Vim in a few ways:

  • Makes the current match easier to see by highlighting it differently and keeping it centered
  • Makes "very magic" pattern syntax the default
  • Provides a shortcut for removing search highlighting
  • Sets sensible defaults for Vim’s search-related settings

Note: This isn’t intended to be feature-competitive with something like incsearch.vim. This is lightweight and minimal, and contains the small set of features that I’ve built up over time while tweaking my Vim set-up.
