Scala syntax highlighting in VIM

November 2, 2010

To get SCALA syntax highlighting in Vim do the following:

1. Download the scala.vim file from here http://github.com/vim-scripts/scala.vim

2. Save it somewhere you can find it (e.g. your ~/.vim/syntax directory; you may need to create this)

3. Edit your ~/.vimrc file and add the following:

au BufRead,BufNewFile *.scala set filetype=scala
au! Syntax scala source ~/.vim/syntax/scala.vim

4. open a .scala file in vim and you should find some basic syntax highlighting working. Great!
