figures I try to start getting familiar with VIM but can’t even get syntax highlighting to work. Error saying a file is missing but can’t figure out where that is supposed to come from. specifically vim/syntax/syntax.vim

  1. @miklb in your .vimrc have you enabled syntax on ? Elsewise, VIM may not be detecting syntax automatically. Initial vimconfig is a special kind of witchery, though, so I’m not certain how helpful I’m actually being 😬 I’ve been all over neovim lately.

    1. yes, that’s where the error comes from. The line in `.vimrc` that has `syntax on` somewhere the syntax highlighting files are missing but I don’t know how to install/re-install.

    2. clean install of vim with homebrew and removing zplugin did the trick. I’m still trying up my power user status so experimenting with a few different new tools. Thanks for the help.
