I use vim's spellchecking feature. Given that I work with many technical terms and LaTeX commands, I tend to add many them to my personal dictionary in
I would like to share this file across multiple machines, so that when I add a word to the file on one machine, it is also added on other machines, and I don't need to add it once on each machine. I tried versioning
~/.vim/spell/en.utf-8.add in git, but this does not seem to work: vim does not pick up the new terms. I suspect that vim also needs the file
en.utf-8.add.spl to be edited somehow, but as this file is binary, versioning it will probably lead to conflicts.
Does anyone here have a satisfactory solution to have vim spellcheck dictionary additions as part of their config, and synchronising them between all of their machines?
