A Quick Note on Regexes

Vim 7.4 was released recently, and unfortunately broke how this plugin handles regexes. There was no real easy way for us to fix this unless we completely rewrote how regexes work.

Good News: There was a recent update to Vim 7.4 that fixes this issue.

Make sure you are at least using Vim 7.4, with patches 1-7.

If you are stuck on an older version of Vim 7.4 with no way to update, then simply perform the following commands to fix your current buffer:

:set regexpengine=1
:syntax enable


Install with Vundle

Add to vimrc:

Bundle "ZucchiniZe/vim-spider"

And install it:

:so ~/.vimrc

Install with pathogen

  cd ~/.vim/bundle
  git clone


The following variables control certain syntax highlighting features. You can add them to your .vimrc to enable/disable their features.


Enables HTML/CSS syntax highlighting in your spider file.

Default Value: 0

Default Value: 1


Enables concealing characters. For example, func is replaced with ƒ

Default Value: 0
