Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome, welkomEdit

Welcome to the Vim Tips wiki! We hope you can help improve the articles by fixing typos, adding comments (at the bottom of each tip page), rewriting tips, joining in discussions, or making any other improvements.

Be sure to visit the community portal for information about our site, with links to how to pages.

Keep an eye on the recent changes page, where all edits and their authors (anonymous or signed-in) are listed. Bookmark it, maybe.

If you want to get involved, check out our Vim Tips Wiki:Policy. We'd like you to join the mailing list.



Hi Clearmoments! You've given yourself quite a job by creating a tip on syntax files – complex stuff, thanks. You might like to create your user page (can be very simple, perhaps just say how long you've used Vim – see Special:Listusers for some ideas). You are welcome to put any to-do or other notes related to Vim or the wiki under your user page. --JohnBeckett 09:13, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Creating your own syntax filesEdit

I've only had a very quick look so far, but your new tip is great. I will soon edit it by including the "proposed new tips" template, and adjusting some of the formatting to use more of the wiki style that has evolved here. I'll probably also find a few other things to tweak, but I haven't got time to look at the substantive content at the moment (actually I'll probably leave that for someone more knowledgeable in this area).

I hope you won't mind the editing your new creation gets! Feel free to reverse anything you don't like, and/or discuss it here. You probably know that you can click the "history" tab (on my browser, I would Control-click it so it opens in a new tab). Then you can see differences (so you can determine what I change).

We usually avoid the tip discussion pages so we don't have to look at two pages. Instead, just put any "todo" and other notes in the ==Comments== section that I will add at the bottom (we have that on all tips). Many tips need lots of work, and we feel it's best to frankly admit that right on the tips page. --JohnBeckett 09:13, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
