Remap space bar to remove search highlighting in vim
I love vim but I’d forgotten to add this snippet to my
/search for something in vim it stays highlighted which can get frustrating fast.
Easy way to turn it off, just remap the space bar. Search terms will stay highlighted after a search and let you navigate around but if you want to unhighlight then the space bar will fix it.
