A Vim plugin for editing fenced code blocks

Introduction

Fenced code blocks are a very useful feature of GitHub Flavored Markdown. With this plugin you can edit the fragment of code embedded inside the markdown with the right filetype.

Use

This plugin defines 4 new commands:

  • :E to edit in the same window, CTRL-^ to go back to the markdown file
  • :EV to edit in the vertical split window, CTRL-W l to go back to the markdown file
  • :ES to edit in the horizontal split window, CTRL-W j to go back to the markdown file
  • :ET to edit in a new tab.

All the commands accept the bang.
