If fugitive.vim is the Git, rhubarb.vim is the Hub. Here's the full list of features:

  • Enables

    from fugitive.vim to open GitHub URLs.
  • Sets up

    to use
    if installed rather than
  • In commit messages, GitHub issues, issue URLs, and collaborators can be omni-completed (

    , see 
    :help compl-omni
    ). This makes inserting those
    Closes #123
    remarks slightly easier than copying and pasting from the browser.


If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone
vim -u NONE -c "helptags vim-rhubarb/doc" -c q

You'll also need fugitive.vim.

Curl (included with macOS) is required for features that use the GitHub API (i.e.,

doesn't need it). Generate a personal access token with repo permissions and add it to your
echo 'machine login  password ' >> ~/.netrc

If you are using GitHub Enterprise, repeat this step for each domain (omit the

portion). You'll also need to tell Rhubarb the root URLs:
let g:github_enterprise_urls = ['']


How do I turn off that preview window that shows the issue body?

set completeopt-=preview
