Installing Julia syntax highlighting in Vim
Julia syntax highlighting may be installed in the form of a Vim plugin.
- You should have a plugin manager for Vi installed. I use Vundle, which does require installing Git first (which is also useful generally, so get it!).
Follow Vundle's 'Quick Start' instructions carefully.
- Place the following line in your .vimrc (located at ~/.vimrc or, for me, Users/eliothalley/.vimrc), between call vundle#begin() and call vundle#end(): Plugin 'JuliaEditorSupport/julia-vim'
This command goes to github account JuliaEditorSupport and downloads from the folder /julia-vim.
- Finish the installation by opening Vi and entering the plugin installer command :PluginInstall! (don't forget the punctuation)
