Vim Syntax Highlighting

May 27, 2012

I just discovered how to turn on syntax highlighting by default on Vim.  All you have to do is add the following line to your ~/.vimrc file:

:syntax on

If you don't have a .vimrc file, a quick way to add one is by running the following command:

$ echo ":syntax on" >> ~./vimrc

I was impressed to find that Vim contains Groovy syntax highlighting by default.  Enjoy!
