synopsis: "Installation with Opam"
description: """
If you have a working [Opam]( installation, Merlin is only two commands away:
opam install merlin
opam user-setup install
[opam-user-setup]( takes care of configuring Emacs and Vim to make best use of your current install.
You can also [configure the editor](#editor-setup) yourself, if you prefer."""

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)))
