The vim-template plugin allows for the use of templates for different file types: *.html, *.py and so on. Following the installation instructions (see above link), we use pathogen to install the plugin:
cd ~/.vim/bundle git clone git://github.com/aperezdc/vim-template.git
Use of plugin
Now, you can make use of the templates when starting vim. For example, a python template is loaded by recognition of the *.py filename:
Or, if you have new buffer, type the following for the template to be loaded inside vim:
The available templates can be seen here. Using the pathogen installation described above, these templates are located (on your machine) at
If you want to customize certain fields, like email and username, you can add the following to your .vimrc file:
" Customize the settings for vim-template plugin let g:email = "firstname.lastname@example.org" let g:user = "Desired Name" let g:license = "Desired License"
If you want to customize the templates, there is a search order for templates (see here) allowing you to write your own template-files and store them in the local directory.
Change permission on file to allow execution (of course, use your version of JabRef jar):
chmod u+x JabRef-2.8.1.jar
Starting JabRef from the command line is done with:
java -jar JabRef-2.8.1.jar
In practice, it is probably best to create a launcher for the application.
I have always found that the Sun, now Oracle, version of Java is needed for some of the Java programs that I use in Ubuntu. For 12.04 LTS, there is a ppa to install Oracle Java 7 JDK, described here. First, Oracle requires the acceptance of their license:
echo oracle-java7-installer shared/accepted-oracle-license-v1-1 select true | sudo /usr/bin/debconf-set-selections
Note: I had to modify the above command, resulting in the above form, for this to work (see ‘update’ section in above link for original).
Next, install from the ppa:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
A test of the Java version:
should return something like:
java version "1.7.0_07" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_07-b10) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.3-b01, mixed mode)
Finally, you can check the plugin for Firefox by typing
