Integrating rvm with vim

If you wish to add rvm information to your vim status line, check out rvm.vim.

MacVim with rvm rubies.

If you wish to use MacVim with a rvm ruby, you'll have to build MacVim from source after applying the patch located here.

Thanks to Michael Shapiro for providing this patch.

MacVim, ZSH and rvm rubies.

If you are using ZSH you may find that MacVim is not loading your rvm configuration correctly. This may be because you are sourcing the rvm scripts in your .zshrc file. MacVim does not source the .zshrc file, but will source the .zshenv file. To ensure that MacVim correctly loads rvm for its shell, and running ruby commands, source the rvm scripts from withing .zshenv. Alternatively, you can add:

set shell=/bin/sh

to your .vimrc, and ensure vim always runs from a shell, and ensure you source rvm from within your .profile file.
