Niji (Rainbow) is yet another rainbow parentheses plugin for Vim. It’s good for Common Lisp, Scheme and Clojure — with two colour schemes — out-of-the-box. Just install, and you’re good to go. The filetypes, matching characters and colours Niji uses are completely configurable.

Whilst not a fork, Niji builds upon the work of various rainbow parantheses plugins, starting with ‘RainbowParenthsis.vim’ by John Gilmore, ‘rainbow_parenthsis.vim’ by Martin Krischik and Luc Hermitte, and ‘rainbow_parentheses.vim’ by ‘kien’.

Niji also takes its default colour scheme from the Lisp syntax file provided in distributions of Vim and written by Dr. Charles E. Campbell, Jr.
