I just successfully installed vim-airline, and all the required stuff. I've downloaded the powerline-fonts, and successfully installed them. The only problem right now I'm having is: On right side of the bar from my angle, it shows some spacing between arrows and boxes like in the following picture:

Spacing between arrow and box on right side

I've applied a lot of techniques to make it look properly, but nothing makes it work.

Note: No matter, how wide or short the screen is - the spacing remains consistent.

  • have you tried changing the font-size ? also you can try with this font that works great : github.com/larsenwork/monoid – nobe4 Aug 19 '15 at 8:54
  • Yes, I've. Changing the font-size makes the space out, but at the same time, it also makes the arrow (much more)bigger than the box, and it looks awkward. – Arslan Ali Aug 19 '15 at 8:58

let g:airline#extensions#whitespace#mixed_indent_algo = 1

Also, some fonts may work better than others. e.g. :

  • I'm not sure why this is the accepted answer. The first suggestion doesn't change the padding on the right-hand side at all and most of us chose the font we did because we like it better than all of the other fonts. I'll fork vim-airline and see if I can find the source. – cbartondock Jun 27 '18 at 3:11
