Adding Vim support for a new language

A session at Language specific talks

Tuesday 1st October, 2013

7:15pm to 7:30pm (GMT)

We'll look at what is required to add Vim support for a brand new programming language. This could include (in rough order of priority): filetype detection, syntax definition, indentation awareness (to support = command), omni-completion, folding support, errorformat, auto-configuration of `path`.
