I find the documents frustrating. What are the basic lines I need to add to my config file to get it working?
Technically, nothing. If you've extracted Syntastic into your
.vim directory, try using the
:SyntasticEnable command within Vim to enable it for the filetype of the currently open file.
If you want to automatically turn it on for a given filetype, then you'll want to put a...
line in your
[filetype] is the type of file you want to enable it for.
