pathogen Cookbook

Use this cookbook to install the Pathogen vim plugin manager.


This cookbook has been tested with the following platforms:

  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • Centos 7.2


The focus of this cookbook is on installing Pathogen and plugins, so it doesn't provide sophisticated recipes for git and vim itself, for which excellent and detailed cookbooks are already available. With that said, you can include barebones package-based recipes from within this cookbook if you don't need anything special:

include_recipe 'pathogen[git]'
include_recipe 'pathogen[vim]'


  • node['pathogen']['install_path'] - Specify the directory where pathogen should be installed. Defaults to '/root/.vim.
  • node['pathogen']['vimrc_path'] - Specify the location of your user's .vimrc file. Defaults to '/root/.vimrc'.


  • pathogen_plugin - This resource wraps git and can be used to install plugins to node['pathogen']['install_path']/bundle. To use it, pass the name of the plugin as the name attribute and the GitHub user/organization as the github_org attribute:

    pathogen_plugin 'ctrlp.vim' do
      github_org 'ctrlpvim'


To install Pathogen, add recipe[pathogen] to your run list or include the default recipe in recipe that is in your run list. If you aren't using some other source to install git and vim, add those recipes before the default pathogen recipe.

To install plugins, use the above-mentioned pathogen_plugin LWRP in a recipe that is in your run list.
