iwilldiffer is a vim plugin that shows you vcs diff add/mod/del lines in the gutter.
iwilldiffer supports git, hg, bzr
You need diff, python (2.6+), vim, and whichever supported vcs tool you wish to use.
Install the plugin (TODO: describe the magic which is installing vim plugins)
You might want the following in your .vimrc:
let g:iwilldiffer_check_on_open=1 let g:iwilldiffer_check_on_save=1
Gutter background color is controlled by value for highlight SignColumn. Change this value in your colorscheme or add to your .vimrc:
- highlight SignColumn guibg=foo ctermbg=foo
