Increase your vim performance when using syntax highlighting

October 11, 2017


For any vim people, I thought you might find this useful. As people who have paired on my machine can attest, I have had super slow performance once I have a few panes open in tmux. Turns out the problem was poor performance with syntax highlighting. Setting ‘set re=1’ in your .vimrc reverts back to a previous regex engine which is much faster. It’s like night and day.
