Edit processing sketches in Vim

Since I last used processing many moons ago, it's become possible to use other text editors rather than their default IDE. Here's how to edit and run processing sketches, straight from Vim.

  1. Install Vim Processing.
  2. Install "processing-java" by opening the Processing IDE, then clicking "Tools > 'processing-java'"
  3. Run sketches from within vim with the :make command. I've mapped leader-m to this command to speed things up a bit:
" Run :make in processing sketches
map <Leader>m :make<cr>
