We have a new Raspberry Pi 3 in the house and I’ve been having some fun getting it setup to edit Python with customized vim. You can see my dotfiles here.
So in a nutshell, I like using tmux + vim + plugins and customizations. The following are some snags I ran into and how to get them sorted.
To get tmux and vim with Python enabled for plugins:
sudo apt-get install tmux vim-nox
I use syncthing to keep my dotfiles in sync on the different systems I develop on.
cd ~/sync/common/config/dotfiles ./updot.sh
cd ~ vim +PluginInstall
Before trying to build YouCompleteMe you will need to increase your swapfile size otherwise you’ll die a strange an convoluted death.
sudo vim /etc/dphys-swapfile
#edit this line #CONF_SWAPFILE=100 CONF_SWAPFILE=1000
Then reboot. switch to
I returned the CONF_SWAPFILE back afterwards.
sudo apt-get install python-virtualenv
To get the requests package to run without the Insecure Platform you’ll need to install some supporting libs
sudo apt-get install libffi-dev libssl-dev python2.7-dev
Finally, the default /etc/vim/vimrc has syntax highlighting commented out. So either uncomment it, or as in my case, update your .vimrc to enable highlighting. — First platform that I have had to do this on. It won’t hurt my other installs so I kept it in my own dotfiles.
