script type
Syntax highlighting for the specta/expecta Objective-C test frameworks.


With Vundle


Bundle 'Keithbsmiley/specta.vim'

To your .vimrc and run BundleInstall from within vim or vim +BundleInstall +qall from the command line

With Pathogen

cd ~/.vim/bundle git clone https://github.com/Keithbsmiley/specta.vim.git


You can set the syntax for a file manually with set syntax=specta I recommend you do this in your .vimrc detecting your typical test filename, for example in mine I use:

autocmd BufReadPost,BufWrite *Test.m set filetype=specta

This changes the filetype to specta whenever a file named *Test.m is read or written (written sets the syntax correctly for newly created files)

I also recommend you install cocoa.vim which adds some Objective-C highlighting features (automatically used by specta.vim if installed).

Known issues

Right parens ) at the end of describe blocks show up as errors
Highlighting inside other blocks doesn’t work (this is because cocoa.vim messes with the block highlighting behavior)
