The main plugins you might be interested in will be:

SnipMate (Textmate-like snippets), Nerdtree (directory browser), Minibufexplorer (manage multiple buffers) and taglist (Make use of C-tags for an object browser).

You can find these plugins and more at http://vim.org/

You could start by following http://blog.danielfischer.com/2010/11/19/a-starting-guide-to-vim-from-textmate/

The vimcasts.org site has some good videos which show how to do textmate things in Vim. –  davey Sep 12 '11 at 12:32

Vimmate is an effort to do just what you ask. The only problem is that it seems abandonware. But it works for me.

enter image description here

You can try it by doing sudo gem install VimMate.

If you want Textmate alternative for Linux. Try this

1) Gedit with Gedit-gmate and Gedit-plugins https://github.com/gmate/gmate

2) Redcar https://github.com/redcar/redcar/wiki/installation

Or, alternate approachs:

  • Vico, editor with Vi keybindings and support for some TextMate bundles
  • TextMateVim, TextMate plugin to add some Vi keybindings
