I always seem to end up in vim sooner or later, and I use Tim Pope's excellent Effortless Ctags with Git process to keep my ctags file up to date for my projects.

As I'm now coding in Swift too, I needed ctags to support Swift. This is what I've added to my .ctags file:

--regex-swift=/(var|let)[ \t]+([^:=]+).*$/\2/,variable/ 
--regex-swift=/func[ \t]+([^\(\)]+)\([^\(\)]*\)/\1/,function/ 
--regex-swift=/class[ \t]+([^:\{]+).*$/\1/,class/ 
--regex-swift=/protocol[ \t]+([^:\{]+).*$/\1/,protocol/

Any improvements, welcome!


As I'm writing about Swift and vim, I should also point out that the vim-swift plugin by Kevin Ballard is a must-have!
