Send buffer contents to a command

Sometimes, when I have to run a series of important commands with lots of switches (hi, knife bootstrap!), I like to type them all in an editor and then run them when I’m done.

Vim can :write to any output, so doing:

:w !sh

will write the contents of the current buffer to the sh command, and display the output.

This plugin let’s you take code like this:

service "nginx" do
  action :nothing

type gJ for Go Join That!, and it turns in to:

service "nginx" { action :nothing }

type gS for Go Split That!, to change it back.

Works with blocks, if statements, and most structures that do both multi-line and single line forms. Supports many programming languages too.
