Vim => ES6 {Improved Syntax Highlighting}

Recently, I decided to take a deep dive into the world of Javascript. So far so good, but I was off put by one thing: Vim’s terrible syntax highlighting for modern Javascript. At first it seemed like I was going to have to accept it. Luckily though, I was able to find a great plugin that adds excellent ES6 syntax highlighting.

Don’t believe me?
