A simple vim plugin that allows to execute any opened node.js file with :make and provides errorformat settings that allow you to quickly jump to any file / line numbers referenced in a stack trace.


Get pathogen, then:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://


If you already know how :make and the quickfix window work in vim, just type :make inside of a JS file to have it executed with node, then type :copen to show the quickfix window.

However, if you are new to this, you probably want a keybinding like this in your .vimrc

nmap <Leader><Leader> :w<CR>:make! \| botright cwindow<CR>

This will map <leader><leader> (,, for me) to excuting :make and automatically opening the quickfix window if there was an error.

Known Problems

  • Node core modules are listed in the quickfix window, but can't be opened because node.js does not install those files on your local system. I am looking for ideas on a clever hack, otherwise I'll make an option for hiding those files from the error list.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
