Vim Syntax for Textile

I’ve been using textile more and more these days. It’s quite convenient for writing.

But what’s annoying is that there is no support for it in Vim.

So, after a bit of messing around with the vim manual Your own syntax highlighted, I now have textile.vim.

It’s definitely a first attempt at such things. There’s a lot that it doesn’t do. But for an hours work, it’s started to highlight textile files well enough for me.

Update: PlasticBoy has a similar Vim syntax for Markdown. I should take a look and get some ideas from there…
