Installing vim with homebrew assistance
I tried to install YouCompleteMe on Mac for vim, but I've been using the system vim which is version 7.3. I tried to update my vim using homebrew by typing
brew install vim and everything seemed to be fine.
When I type
vim I still see the system vim loading (version 7.3).
I feel like I'm missing a step that's keeping me from using the updated
vim I got from homebrew. Does anyone know what I'm missing?
For reference when I type
which vim I get the following output
/usr/bin/vim. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Just install vim via homebrew:
brew install vim
Then restart your shell:
exec -l $SHELL
And check the version:
$ vim --version|head -n 1 VIM - Vi IMproved 7.4 (2013 Aug 10, compiled Mar 9 2016 19:07:39)
