Goto declaration of class|methods|functions in Vim

  • First, you need the ctags tool. The most common today is Exuberant Ctags, found at ctags.sourceforge.net:
    sudo apt-get install exuberant-ctags
  • Next, you need to create a tags database (a file names tags) for all the files in your project(s). This is usually done by running :
    ctags -R

    from your project root (also from within Vim via :!ctags ...). Exuberant Ctags support 41 languages, and you can even extend it via regular expressions.

  • Finally, Vim needs to be configured to pick up the tags database. With :set tags=./tags;, it will search in the file's directory upwards to the root directory. If you have certain global include directories, you can add those.
  • With that, you can start using Vim's tag functionality like and :tag
