Syntax WML

Post by bernado_pampa » December 14th, 2017, 9:14 pm


What editor do you use for the files cfg?

I'm using Sublime Text, but no have syntax WML.

I see the topic viewtopic.php?f=21&t=13799, but not work Gedit.

I'm use Linux.

Does anyone have any ideas?
Or eventually, does anyone have any idea how to create a syntax?

I use Kate. WML syntax highlighting is included in Kate and KWrite. (However, WML doesn't work unless you disable highlighting for Quake Script, because Quake Script files also use "cfg".)

I use Visual Studio Code for coding WML. There is also an addon for WML support here. :)

I use gedit, I think with the one form the second post in the above linked thread.
There's also another one, see the fourth post.
The one in the first post is way outdated, for gedit 1.x.

Sytnax highlighting for sublime text or atom editor would be great, but I think nobody created it yet.
I'm not sure, but VS code as editor may be similar to them.
