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.
