Easy Improvements: Syntax Highlighting & Line Numbers

Just thought I would point out that many installations of vim come with only the stripped down vim-tiny version. This does not support syntax highlighting, so users will have to install a full version. So if anyone finds it’s not working as expected that may well be the reason.

Thanks for the tip @gdwl, that’s good to know! So in case anyone runs into that issue, you can download vim here.

@gdwl You can use brew install vim if your computer is Mac OS system.
