Since I just had to recently get my machine scaffolded again, I had a chance to revisit this item. I think this time I got it figured out a little better!!
For reference this is what my vim folder looks like:
Download the following files (I place them in the appropriate folders in my vimfiles folder:
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1327 (Syntax File)
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1815 (Indent File)
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1816 (File Type Plugin)
Once I had copied those files into the appropriate folders:
I edited my vimrc file and have the following section (just before the syntax on command):
With that done I can open up a powershell file and get syntax highlighting.
Unlike in the last post, this solution will also allow me to upgrade my version of Vim without issues as I am now placing custom plugins in my vimfiles folder (under version control, so I can quickly rebuild a machine if needed!!), as well as the fact that I am making use of my
vimrc file to enable the custom plugin.
