According to document,
let NERD_cpp_alt_style=1
let NERD_c_alt_style=1
to vimrc should switching commenting style. But it doesn't. And I doesn't see any related code in the script.


I ran into this too, and as a short term fix I changed the custom delimiters in my .vimrc (actually .vimrc.before since I'm using janus atm)

let g:NERDCustomDelimiters = {
    \ 'haskell': { 'leftAlt': '{-','rightAlt': '-}', 'left': '-- ', 'right': '' },
\ }

Hello? Can the maintainer give a answer to this question? We can not have a thing described in document but does not exists!


I encountered this problem too. Currently the solution of @zmoazeni is the easiest way to get it working, which isn't exactly pretty.


I also had this issue. Surprising that this has not been addressed by now, though @zmoazeni thankfully has enabled me to fix my short term problem. (And I had precisely the same problem as him; that arrangement should probably be the default for Haskell.)


Confirmed on this issue. It seems the author didn't implement this feature. zmoazeni's workaround works pretty good.

I've recently been added as a maintainer on this project and am working through the issue backlog. It does look like this feature was never implemented and only the documentation exists. I don't have time to do a bunch of dev work on this—I'm mostly just coordinating all the contributions—but if somebody would like to actually set this up I'd be glad to review a PR that fixes this. Otherwise the thing to do might be to delete the bogus documentation. Anybody?


See PR #155 for a (partial?) implementation of this.

With many thanks to @saep for actually implementing this, I have merged the PR that adds this feature and made a few tweaks. Please note that I changed the actual preference key format to be more like the other values. For example to always default to the alternates for java:

let g:NERDAltDelims_java = 1

Note this is documented in help and now in the README as well. Let be know if anybody has trouble with the feature.
