Configuration Variables

The following variables control certain syntax highlighting features. You can add them to your .vimrc to enable/disable their features.

let g:javascript_enable_domhtmlcss = 1

Enables HTML/CSS syntax highlighting in your JavaScript file.

Default Value: 0

let g:javascript_ignore_javaScriptdoc = 1

Disables JSDoc syntax highlighting

Default Value: 0

set foldmethod=syntax

Enables code folding based on our syntax file.

Please note this can have a dramatic effect on performance and because it is a global vim option, we do not set it ourselves.

Concealing Characters

You can customize concealing characters by defining one or more of the following variables:

let g:javascript_conceal_function       = "ƒ"
let g:javascript_conceal_null           = "ø"
let g:javascript_conceal_this           = "@"
let g:javascript_conceal_return         = "⇚"
let g:javascript_conceal_undefined      = "¿"
let g:javascript_conceal_NaN            = "ℕ"
let g:javascript_conceal_prototype      = "¶"
let g:javascript_conceal_static         = "•"
let g:javascript_conceal_super          = "Ω"
let g:javascript_conceal_arrow_function = "⇒"
