Configuration Variables

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

let g:javascript_plugin_jsdoc = 1

Enables syntax highlighting for JSDocs.

Default Value: 0

let g:javascript_plugin_ngdoc = 1

Enables some additional syntax highlighting for NGDocs. Requires JSDoc plugin to be enabled as well.

Please note this can have a dramatic effect on performance and because it is a global vim option, we do not set it ourselves.
