I have a bunch of alliases in my shell . When coding in vim, I frequently run whatever file I'm working on from vim's command mode,
often by just mapping a key combo to run it.
:map ,r :w\|!node %<CR>
A problem I often run into is that vim's command mode doesn't know about my shell aliases. So if I have an alias like this in .zshrc
:!python % from vim, I get something like
zsh:1: command not found: python
shell returned 127
My aliases used to be defined in .zshrc, but this file is not sourced when
running a command from vim's command mode. The solution is to move your
, which is
Note there's no need to load ~/.zshenv from ~/.zshrc, as it's part of the default zsh startup sequence and therefore loaded by default.
