Octopress support for Vim
Latest commit 00f7771 @tangledhelix Changed license to MIT

vim-octopress adds syntax highlighting and Octopress commands to Vim. Both Markdown and Textile modes are supported.

Using the :Octopress command, you can create new posts, regenerate your output files, and even deploy to your server.

NOTE: At this time, live preview mode is not supported, due to limitations in how Vim handles background processes. It is not expected that this support will be added unless Octopress significantly redesigns the preview mode.

If you use Pathogen (and you really should):

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone octopress

Or, to install the old-fashioned way:

git clone
cd vim-octopress
for i in doc ftplugin plugin syntax; do
    mkdir -p ~/.vim/$i
    cp $i/octopress.* ~/.vim/$i

For more information, see :help octopress or read octopress.txt online.
