auto adjust vim window size in split window environment

sinbadd
In split window environment how to make vim to automatically adjust its size to the longest length of the line. is there any plugin that already does it ? Basically i don't expect the size to shrink, but to grow when the line is long enough, at the expense of shortening the other split windows.

I would expect that any plugin to do this wouldn't work very well.  The reason for this is that lines in messy code (written by others of course) can often be very long.  The screen itself is often the limiting factor.

I suggest using the 'wrap' option and setting a toggle for it.  This makes the text readable without a complicated plugin and can also be quickly switched on/off. Further, resizing windows using the mouse is often the most convenient option (click and drag the separator like you would in any other editor).  If you aren't already doing this you should start because using keyboard commands to size your windows is an absolute pain.
