description
This plug-in automatically creates a global tags file and keeps it up-to-date as you edit files in Vim. The tags are also used to perform dynamic syntax highlighting of user-defined functions and types. For more information about the plug-in please refer to its homepage or the project page on GitHub:

• http://peterodding.com/code/vim/easytags/
• http://github.com/xolox/vim-easytags

If you have questions, bug reports, suggestions, etc. the author can be contacted at peter@peterodding.com. If you like this plug-in please vote for it below!
 
install details
Please note that the vim-easytags plug-in requires my vim-misc plug-in which is separately distributed (see vimscript #4597).

Unzip the most recent ZIP archives of the vim-easytags and vim-misc plug-ins inside your Vim profile directory (usually this is ~/.vim on UNIX and %USERPROFILE%\vimfiles on Windows), restart Vim and execute the command :helptags ~/.vim/doc (use :helptags ~\vimfiles\doc instead on Windows).

If you prefer you can also use Pathogen, Vundle or a similar tool to install & update the vim-easytags and vim-misc plug-ins using a local clone of the git repository.

Now try it out: Edit any file type supported by Exuberant Ctags and within ten seconds the plug-in should create/update your tags file ("~/.vimtags" on UNIX, "~/_vimtags" on Windows) with the tags defined in the file you just edited! This means that whatever file you're editing in Vim (as long as its on the local file system), tags will always be available by the time you need them!

Additionally if the file you just opened is a C, C++, Objective-C, Java, Lua, Python, PHP, Ruby or Vim source file you should also notice that the function and type names defined in the file have been syntax highlighted.

If the plug-in warns you that ctags isn't installed you can download it from its homepage http://ctags.sourceforge.net/ or if you're running Debian/Ubuntu you can install it by executing the following shell command:

    sudo apt-get install exuberant-ctags

Note that on Windows a command prompt window pops up whenever Exuberant Ctags is run as an external process. If this bothers you then you can install my shell.vim plug-in (see vimscript #3123) which includes a DLL that works around this issue. Once you’ve installed both plug-ins it should work out of the box!

easytags.zip 2.0 2010-08-09 7.0 Peter Odding http://github.com/xolox/vim-easytags/commit/89f9205ff840329aa75166249a99b1d0f227d661:
• Enable commands like :UpdateTags -R ~/.vim/.
• Fixed a rare problem where tags sort before the !_TAG_FILE_SORTED header causing E432.
• Finally documented the :UpdateTags and :HighlightTags commands.
• Dynamic highlighting can now be disabled for individual buffers, which can come in handy when the highlighting conflicts with another plug-in: Just set the 'b:easytags_nohl' variable to any value.

easytags.zip 1.9 2010-06-13 7.0 Peter Odding Fixed tags file corruption on Windows!
http://github.com/xolox/vim-easytags/commit/ad3bd15a76acaeb8bd5c92e104ab95a7b55f6fee

* Fixed tags file corruption on Windows: It turns out that the function readfile() accepts CR+NL line endings and just strips CR characters, however the writefile() function doesn't write CR+NL but just NL. Manually adding the CR characters to the end of each line before writing the tags file solves the corruption bug.

* The headers and entries in tags files are now properly separated from each other while rewriting the tags file to filter expired entries.

* Don't bother trying to filter expired tags when the tags file doesn't reference the current filename at all (improves performance a bit).

* Fixed a buggy easytags#file_has_tags() call in easytags#autoload() that made the plug-in always scan each edited file at least once.

* Changed folds to provide basic outline of function categories.

* Restructured definitions for default configuration of dynamic syntax highlighting support so definitions don't all have to be indented.

Sorry about the large diff, this version took a few days of experimentation to build which means lots of little changes.

easytags.zip 1.8 2010-06-10 7.0 Peter Odding The plug-in now more-or-less supports Microsoft Windows, the only remaining problems are the flashing command prompt (which I know how to fix) and the fact that CursorHold seems to fire repeatedly (which I don't, yet).
