If I understood it correctly gruvbox has it's own airline and you don't need vim-airline installed. I followed the easy install with Vundle but for some reason the airline just doesn't load. I'm using Konsole as a terminal. Thank you.

  • No, Gruvbox comes with an airline theme that can be applied to airline. – D. Ben Knoble Aug 9 at 22:02
  • Thank you @D.BenKnoble. A bit new to this and realized that you still have to install airline. – user18540 Aug 10 at 4:49
  • correct. If you want to use the gruvbox theme with vim-airline, you have to install the gruvbox colorscheme plugin in addition to vim-airline. – Christian Brabandt Aug 10 at 6:21
  • @turtlewin want to add that as an answer? – D. Ben Knoble Aug 10 at 11:40
  • @D.BenKnoble I can't seem to add an answer myself or make the comment an accepted answer. God it feels good to be a newbie, everything amazes me. – user18540 Aug 10 at 13:55

Gruvbox is a colorscheme, and comes packaged with an airline theme as can be seen by the inclusion of an autoload/airline/themes/gruvbox.vim file.

Gruvbox itself does not come with airline, but it supports it.

To use airline, you will need to install it; then, you may let g:airline_theme = 'gruvbox' in your vimrc.
