Enabling markdown syntax for .md files in MacVim

Find where you installed it, in my case it was as below because I installed it with Homebrew:


Edit this file:


Remove “.md” from the lines below:

Modula 2
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.m2,*.DEF,*.MOD,*.md,*.mi setf modula2

Search for the following:

au BufNewFile,BufRead *.markdown,*.mdown,*.mkd,*.mkdn,README.md setf markdown

Add the below near the end of line, directly after “README.md”


Restart MacVim and you’ll be good to go.
