vim creating alias for frequently used command

0 votes
I want edit waf wscript files. I am executing the following command to set the filetype:

set filetype=python

Is there any other way to set up a small alias for the above command so that I can just go in EX mode and type "py" which does the same thing? Can anyone tell me the solution?

You can add the following to your .vimrc and try:

autocmd BufRead,BufNewFile *.waf set filetype=python

If it is a particular filename like wscript, this works too:

autocmd BufRead,BufNewFile wscript set filetype=python

If you can't rely on an extension or filename you can add a modeline at the top or bottom of your file such as:

# vim: set filetype=python :
