Vim and Puppet

The dreamer and the wine
Poet without a rhyme
A widow writer torn apart by chains of Hell
(Nightwish – The poet and the pendulum)

One nice thing about vim is ability to extend it with additional plugins. So I’ve stumbled across nice plugin for syntax and code styling checking tools. As I know I’ll be doing lots of my time editing puppet code, I guess I really need this.
For this magic to work, workstation has to have some tools installed:

# yum install puppet rubygem-puppet-lint

Now let’s do some vim magic:

$ mkdir -p ~/.vim/bundle ~/.vim/autoload
$ cd /tmp
$ git clone https://github.com/tpope/vim-pathogen
$ mv vim-pathogen/autoload/pathogen.vim ~/.vim/autoload/
$ cd ~/.vim/bundle
$ git clone https://github.com/scrooloose/syntastic.git

Also you have to have this lines in your .vimrc:

call pathogen#infect()
filetype indent on

And that’s about it!

Now, when you make a code style error for example, vim will detect it and inform you of it!
