How do I list loaded plugins in Vim?


Does anybody know of a way to list up the "loaded plugins" in Vim? I know I should be keeping track of this kind of stuff myself but it would always be nice to be able to check the current status.

Not a VIM user myself, so forgive me if this is totally offbase. But according to what I gather from the following VIM Tips site:

" where was an option set  
:scriptnames            : list all plugins, _vimrcs loaded (super)  
:verbose set history?   : reveals value of history and where set  
:function               : list functions  
:func SearchCompl       : List particular function

The problem with :scriptnames, :commands, :functions, and similar Vim commands, is that they display information in a large slab of text, which is very hard to visually parse.

To get around this, I wrote Headlights, a plugin that adds a menu to Vim showing all loaded plugins, TextMate style. The added benefit is that it shows plugin commands, mappings, files, and other bits and pieces.

:set runtimepath?

This lists the path of all plugins loaded when a file is opened with Vim.

If you use Vundle, :PluginList.

If you use vim-plug (Plug), " A minimalist Vim plugin manager.":


That will not only list your plugins but check their status.
