Inspired by the OpenAjax IDE task force.


See the HTML5 conformance checking in Vim blog entry for an introduction.

Idea is to integrate Web services via curl with your editor vim.

Quick setup

nox:~/.vim/ftplugin% svn co http://svn.natalian.org/projects/html5/ .
nox:~/.vim/ftplugin% sudo ln -s `pwd`/validate-html.sh /usr/bin/validate-html.sh
nox:~/.vim/ftplugin% sudo ln -s `pwd`/validate-js.sh /usr/bin/validate-js.sh

Improving the scripts

Any suggestions? Please get in contact with hendry


  • Vim's makeprg syntax requires some horrible escaping, hence the need for an external script
  • Vim's errorformat has issues parsing anything too complex, so best edit the stream for the errorformat (not the other way around)
  • Vim's quickfix list (:cope) seems to require a filename (%f) in the error format
