Missed an alert message in vim?

If you ever missed an alert message in Vim, you know the ones that show up at the bottom in the command line, you can easily view a list of all past messages by running the :messages command.

You can also add your own using :echom, which adds a persistent message.

Try it now.

NOTE this will only show persistent messages (echom), and not momentary messages set using echo.
