Introducing stan-vim

Stan logo

I made a Vim plugin for Stan!

I’ve been reading and writing a lot of Stan lately, but mainly in barebones text editors (or even just by cating out the file), so I had to make do with none of the creature comforts of my favorite text editor, Vim.

But I also wasn’t happy with the syntax highlighting provided by existing Vim plugins (and they also looked out of date and thinly maintained…), so I just went ahead and learnt a truckload of Vimscript1.

Check out the plugin! You can find installation instructions here and documentation here. Screenshots of syntax highlighting and projects links are below.

  1. As it turns out, Vimscript is a very not-good language. This is probably the last Vim plugin I write. ↩︎
