It works fine for me. Is vim detecting the filetype okay? What is the output of

:set ft?

Is it

I have no idea what's wrong. But the vimwiki syntax highlighting doesn't work for me. All highlighting is in the same color. Do you have any idea why? Do you have the same issues?

Thank you @JonnyJD. Package has been updated.

Also, this has been out-of-date for 4 months. I'm happy to take over as maintainer if you like.

Okay, time is up. Package updated vimwiki 2.0.1 ;-)

JonnyJD commented on 2013-02-11 23:49

I finally created an update script.
Please test the resulting package from and especially the (patched) vimwiki-convert-links

Please tell me if I am missing something or it converts something to a link that should not be converted.
It won't be able to convert everything, but it certainly shouldn't convert too much.

For if you want to keep using CamelCase, I created:
You can switch back to vimwiki1 safely.

JonnyJD commented on 2012-06-15 14:31

Vimwiki 2 is out:

This is partly incompatible with 1.x. Especially the link syntax changed (CamelCase does not work anymore).

So I should probably have one package for 1.x and one for 2.x.
Should these be
vim-vimwiki and vim-vimwiki2 (new package) or
vim-vimwiki1 (new package) and vim-vimwiki?

The arch way (always on the edge) would be to push this package to version 2 and create a vim-vimwiki1 or vim-vimwiki-legacy package, I'd say. Any objections?

I didn't have time yet to evaluate, but it might be possible to run a script to change the wiki pages on update.

I created a hg version of this package for the newest features and updates:

new features (which will also be in 1.3 once it is out):
-markdown syntax support
-:VimwikiBacklinks and :VWB
-Custom wiki2html converters
-conceal long weblinks

JonnyJD, could you please update package? New version of VimWiki arrived few days ago.
Thank you in advance :-)

JonnyJD commented on 2010-09-03 20:31

updated to 1.1.1
the bug I mentioned is fixed

JonnyJD commented on 2010-09-02 22:15

This was only a problem together with some colorschemes. There is a fixed version in:

JonnyJD commented on 2010-09-02 10:11

Updated to 1.1
Please see

# MISC: Many vimwiki commands were renamed from Vimwiki.*Word to Vimwiki.*Link. VimwikiGoHome is renamed to VimwikiIndex, VimwikiTabGoHome to VimwikiTabIndex.
# MISC: vimwiki-option-gohome is removed.

I also still have some issue using :VimwikiIndex. If you depend on this in your workflow: do not upgrade yet.
