Quick setup for VIM
Append this to your .vimrc to add merlin to vim's runtime-path:
let g:opamshare = substitute(system('opam config var share'),'\\n$','','''')
execute \"set rtp+=\" . g:opamshare . \"/merlin/vim\"
Also run the following line in vim to index the documentation:
:execute \"helptags \" . g:opamshare . \"/merlin/vim/doc\"
Quick setup for EMACS
Add opam emacs directory to your load-path by appending this to your .emacs:
(let ((opam-share (ignore-errors (car (process-lines \"opam\" \"config\" \"var\" \"share\")))))
(when (and opam-share (file-directory-p opam-share))
;; Register Merlin
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name \"emacs/site-lisp\" opam-share))
(autoload 'merlin-mode \"merlin\" nil t nil)
;; Automatically start it in OCaml buffers
(add-hook 'tuareg-mode-hook 'merlin-mode t)
(add-hook 'caml-mode-hook 'merlin-mode t)
;; Use opam switch to lookup ocamlmerlin binary
(setq merlin-command 'opam)))
