Some of the code here depends on vim-coffee-script, so it's required that you install that before installing this plugin. The master branch should always be compatible with vim-coffee-script's master branch, so if you have any problems, please ensure you've updated both plugins to their latest version.
Collaborators are welcome. If you feel you're fairly comfortable with the code and use eco on a regular basis, please consider becoming a maintainer of a part of the project -- just open up a github issue requesting collaborator access. Naturally, pull request with fixes or interesting new features are always welcome.
Install from a Zipball
This is the quickest way to get things running.
Extract the archive into
unzip -od ~/.vim vim-eco-HASH.zip
These steps are also used to update the plugin.
Install with Pathogen
Since this plugin has rolling versions based on git commits, using pathogen and
git is the preferred way to install. The plugin ends up contained in its own

Configure Syntax Highlighting
Add these lines to your
vimrc to disable the relevant syntax group.
Disable reserved words error
Reserved words like
var are highlighted as an error where
they're not allowed in CoffeeScript. This can be disabled with:
hi link coffeeReservedError NONE
Note: this affects coffeescript highlighting as well
Disable missing colon error
A few coffeescript control structures -- if-clauses, else-clauses and for-cycles -- need to end with a colon, like so:
<% if foo: %> bar <% else: %> baz <% end %>
If there's no colon at the end of these, they will be highlighted as errors. This can be disabled with:
hi link ecoMissingColonError NONE
