Enhanced JavaScript Syntax for Vim

Credits

  • Zhao Yi, Claudio Fleiner, Scott Shattuck (This file is based on their hard work)
  • gumnos (From the #vim IRC Channel in Freenode) (Who helped me figured out the crazy Vim Regexes)

Description

This file is a fork of this file and the stock one

This version of this file features the following text highlights:

  • Parenthesis, curly and regular brackets.
  • The semicolon or comma at the end of line.
  • Browser, DOM and "Ajax" keywords like objects, methods, properties and others.
  • Operation, comparison and logical symbols (=,==,===,!=,etc.).
  • Separate highlight of the arguments. Thanks to Billychan.

Rationale

While there are already a few syntax files in the wild (some even forks from this project), the goal is to have a syntax file that has current keywords for modern ES/JS development and to be fairly lean and quick on loading.

Installation

  • Using Vim-Plug (Which I recommend), add this line to your .vimrc
Plug 'jelera/vim-javascript-syntax'
  • Using Vundle, add this line to your .vimrc
Plugin 'jelera/vim-javascript-syntax'
  • Using Pathogen, run this command in your shell
git clone https://github.com/jelera/vim-javascript-syntax.git ~/.vim/bundle/vim-javascript-syntax

Suggested Companion Plugins

  • Indentation The recommended way is to use Prettier and ALE.

It can be achieved with Javascript-Indent by Preston Koprivica. On my testing, it has proved to be the most capable and also indents HTML and JS inside HTML. The project is unmaintained for now, but you could fork it and improve upon it.
