Vim Postgresql syntax file


If you use Pathogen for plugin management, simply clone this repository into ~/.vim/bundle to make the pgsql syntax type available:

git clone ~/.vim/bundle/pgsql.vim

If you prefer to install manually, copy syntax/pgsql.vim into your ~/.vim/syntax/ directory, creating it if necessary.


Files with the suffix .pgsql will use the pgsql highlighting automatically.

To enable pgsql syntax for any open buffer, use:

:set syntax=pgsql

Enabling for all .sql files

You can make pgsql.vim the default for SQL syntax by adding this line to your .vimrc:

let g:sql_type_default = 'pgsql'

This tells the sql.vim module to use the pgsql dialect.

Alternately, you can use an autocmd in your ~/.vim/filetype.vim to enable it for all .sql files or some finer pattern:

autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.sql setf pgsql

You do not need both. If in doubt, use the first method.
