I keep the
a formatoption in vim when I'm modifying markdown files, so my lines are automatically kept to
textwidth characters long, with automatic reformatting when I modify text.
How can I make vim keep this behavior, but not reformat/join lines that are inside a triple-backtick code block? For example, consider the following file:
# Title Here's some content that vim is automatically wrapping to 60 characters long, because I have run :set textwidth=60 and :set formatoptions+=a. However, when I'm in the codeblock below, I would like vim to stop the automatic wrapping as well as the line joining. As it stands, this file would be impossible to reproduce in vim with my current settings. ``` def hello(): print("Hello world") ```
Trying to type that codeblock at the end gives me:
``` def hello(): print("Hello world") ```
Is my style of markdown abnormal? Do people just rely on manually turning off the
a formatoption when they're modifying a codeblock? Or am I missing an easy way of handling such codeblocks in markdown files?
I also recorded this asciinema video to illustrate the problem.
