NeoBundle vs Vundle: What are the differences?
NeoBundle: Next generation Vim package manager. NeoBundle is a next generation Vim plugin manager. This plugin is based on Vundle, but I renamed and added tons of features, while Vundle tends to stay simple; Vundle: The plug-in manager for Vim. Vundle is short for Vim bundle and is a Vim plugin manager.
NeoBundle and Vundle can be primarily classified as "Tools for Text Editors" tools.
Some of the features offered by NeoBundle are:
- Plugin prefixed command name (:Bundle vs :NeoBundle).
- Support for vimproc (asynchronous update/install).
- Support for unite.vim interface (update/install/search).
On the other hand, Vundle provides the following key features:
- keep track of and configure your plugins right in the .vimrc
- install configured plugins (a.k.a. scripts/bundle)
- update configured plugins
NeoBundle and Vundle are both open source tools. It seems that Vundle with 20K GitHub stars and 2.28K forks on GitHub has more adoption than NeoBundle with 2.21K GitHub stars and 169 GitHub forks.
