    A code-completion engine for Vim

    I am trying to containerize vim along with the plugins. I am using singularity and not docker but I hope my question is still relevant here. I am using vim with youcompleteme. My approach to containerizing the plugins is to install vim and clone all the plugins to /etc/vim/plugin and compile youcompleteme during the build. Once the image is built, I launch vim with the modified runtimepath (rtp) that points to /etc/vim: singularity run vim_image.sif vim --cmd 'set rtp^=/etc/vim'
