As a quick follow-up to yesterday’s post about YAML, here are some links to add YAML support to your favorite editor. Unfortunately, I have been unable to hunt down YAML mode files for vim and emacs, although I saw a vim file mentioned a couple times. Perhaps this is because YAML itself is so lightweight and readable that it really doesn’t require any syntax highlighting. Anyway, if anybody knows the location of these files (or if you are aware of other editors that support YAML), please leave a comment and I’ll update this list.

Update: It turns out that vim supports YAML syntax highlighting out of the box. I am not sure which version this was added in, but I have tested this both at work (vim 6.3.46) and at home (vim 6.3.84).
