# VIM – how to work with BOTH supertab.vim with snipMate.vim

pluginsvim

I'm picking up vim and found 2 plugins that work great – snipMate, that mimics the textmate's snippet behavior and supertab, that toggles and completes words using the tab key based on exiting words in current/other buffers. I've turned all plugins on in my .vimrc file using :filetype plugin on, but I can only get supertab to work. I suspect that since the TAB key is used for both, they are overriding each other. Has anyone encountered this and found a fix? I'm not an expert yet on editing my .vimrc file, mapping keys, etc. Thanks.

EDIT

When I try to force load snipMate.vim alone, I get the following errors:
