I'm using vim-polyglot, which includes vim-jsx and pangloss/vim-javascript, and I don't get any syntax highlighting in my inline styles in my CSS. I've also tried removing vim-polyglot and installing vim-jsx and vim-javascript manually. My .vimrc is hosted here, but I've tried starting Vim without a config using vim -u NONE foo.js. Any ideas?

FWIW, in that sample I'm using the <style> tag without the jsx attribute. Using the tag like <style jsx> doesn't make a difference.

Hey @statico. 👋

vim-styled-jsx is neither installed via vim-polyglot nor your .vimrc. Are you sure this package is installed in your setup?

Edited: Apart from that, this plugin only detects styled-jsx if you explicitly write <style jsx> or <style jsx global> or <style global jsx>. It at least needs style and jsx in an XML Tag. (The actual regexp is "<style.*jsx.*>".

Hey! 😄

So it's a load order issue. Normally my runtime path looks something like this:

runtimepath=~/.vim,~/.vim/bundle/molokai,~/.vim/bundle/vim-pathogen,~/.vim/bundle/vim-polyglot,~/.vim/bundle/vim-styled-jsx,/usr/local/share/vim/vimfiles, /usr/local/share/vim/vim80,/usr/local/share/vim/vimfiles/after,~/.vim/bundle/vim-styled-jsx/after,~/.vim/bundle/vim-polyglot/after,~/.vim/after,/usr/local/o pt/fzf,~/.fzf

And the colors don't show up. But if I mv ~/.vim/bundle/vim-styled-jsx ~/.vim/bundle/aaaaaaaaa so that vim-styled-jsx in the runtimepath before vim-polyglot, everything is fine.


Thanks for the suggestions. cc @sheerun (vim-polyglot) who might be interested.

You can also disable single syntax as described in the readme :) Then the load order doesn't matter probably

These plugins make the colors look nicer when developing javascript and
react code.

I tried to enable vim-styled-jsx as well, but ran into an issue with
load order and couldn't get it to work.


I tried renaming the plugin folder A_vim-styled-jsx to fix loading order
(as suggested here:
but that didn't work.
