Setting up Vim & Play! Framework

November 11, 2011

Vim is my preferred editor for programming. However, it has been suggested that other more “full-featured” IDE’s are suitable for use with Play as it is a Java framework.

To them I say: “Nerr”, and stick out my tongue.

Let’s get started setting up Vim for use with the Play Framework.

First up, install Vim. (If you had to do that step, then I also suggest Learning Vim)

Next, install the SnipMate Vim plugin which will help alot when actually programming (this isn’t strictly required for using Play, but it is worth the 5 minutes it takes).
