Make vim more Puppet friendly!


  • Formatting based on the latest Puppetlabs Style Guide
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Automatic => alignment (when the tabular plugin is also installed)
  • Snippets for builtin types and functions (when the snipmate plugin is also installed)
  • Doesn't require a bloated JRE
  • Doesn't take minutes to open

For bonus points, install the syntastic plugin for automatic syntax checking while in vim.


If you're using pathogen to manage your vim modules (and if you're not, why aren't you), you can simply add this as a submodule in your ~/.vim/bundle/ directory.

My entire home directory is a git repository, so for me it's simply a case of

$ git submodule add -f git:// .vim/bundle/puppet

If you're not using pathogen, you can just manually place the files in the appropriate places under ~/.vim/
