For users of the vim text editor interested in new syntax highlighting options, meet color_coded.

Color_coded is a new Vim plug-in using LLVM/Clang's libclang library to provide realtime highlighting. In using libclang, the highlighting is done very fast, and works for C, C++, and Objective-C languages. There's also many customization options, the Clang implementation is self-contained, etc.

Those interested in this Vim syntax highlighting library can find out more via the GitHub project page. Libclang can be used for syntax highlighting by various projects and can be used in creative use-cases too for analyzing code and self-generationg documentation, among countless other possibilities.
