This causes vim to automatically re-source and apply changes to your vimrc when the buffer is saved. Really handy when testing new mappings (or adding new snippets!).

In a more dynamic way, you can use
$MYVIMRC instead of
autocmd! bufwritepost $MYVIMRC source $MYVIMRC

Good point, I made it halfway and apparently just didn't complete the thought. Swapped it out.

Very useful, thanks guys ! For neovim i used this:
autocmd! bufwritepost ~/.vimrc source $MYVIMRC
Because my $MYVIMRC points to ~/.config/nvim/init.vim
source ~/.vimrc internally.

"It is recommended to use autocommands in groups, so:
augroup Reload autocmd! autocmd BufWritePost init.vim call ReloadVimrcFunction() augroup END

In my case I have placed this autocommand on the file:
Once that "init.vim" is a vim filetype it only sets the mentioned autocommand on vim filetypes. For each filetype we can have a filetype.vim like c.vim and have all the autocommands loaded just if we are editing that filetype.
