vim.cpp - additional vim c++ syntax highlighting
This file contains additional syntax highlighting that I use for C++11/14/17 development in Vim. Compared to the standard syntax highlighting for C++ it adds highlighting of (user defined) functions and the containers and types in the standard library / boost.
Development is done at: http://github.com/octol/vim-cpp-enhanced-highlight
Highlighting of class scope is disabled by default. To enable set
let g:cpp_class_scope_highlight = 1
Highlighting of member variables is disabled by default. To enable set
let g:cpp_member_variable_highlight = 1
Highlighting of class names in declarations is disabled by default. To enable set
let g:cpp_class_decl_highlight = 1
There are two ways to highlight template functions. Either
let g:cpp_experimental_simple_template_highlight = 1
which works in most cases, but can be a little slow on large files. Alternatively set
let g:cpp_experimental_template_highlight = 1
which is a faster implementation but has some corner cases where it doesn't work.
Note: C++ template syntax is notoriously difficult to parse, so don't expect this feature to be perfect.
Highlighting of library concepts is enabled by
let g:cpp_concepts_highlight = 1
This will highlight the keywords
requires as well as all named
DefaultConstructible) in the standard library.
Highlighting of user defined functions can be disabled by
let g:cpp_no_function_highlight = 1
Follow one of the sets of directions below and reload vim afterwards.
Install using vundle by adding
to .vimrc and run
Git submodule + Pathogen
If you have pathogen installed, and you prefer to use git submodules, run
cd ~/.vim git submodule add https://github.com/octol/vim-cpp-enhanced-highlight.git bundle/syntax/
If you don't have either Vundle or Pathogen installed, copy the cpp.vim file (optionally also c.vim) to .vim/after/syntax.
git clone https://github.com/octol/vim-cpp-enhanced-highlight.git /tmp/vim-cpp-enhanced-highlight mkdir -p ~/.vim/after/syntax/ mv /tmp/vim-cpp-enhanced-highlight/after/syntax/cpp.vim ~/.vim/after/syntax/cpp.vim rm -rf /tmp/vim-cpp-enhanced-highlight
Vim tend to a have issues with flagging braces as errors, see for example https://github.com/vim-jp/vim-cpp/issues/16. A workaround is to set
