    gvim or nedit SKILL syntax highlight in Linux Reply

    Hi, I am new to Linux and looking for some customization of the text editors in Linux.

    I am wondering how I can customize the text editors in Linux (such as gvim or nedit) to highlight the SKILL syntax?

    Thanks in advance

    For nedit use "Preferences > Default Settings > Language Modes" to define SKILL as a new language and once done you can use "Preferences > Default Settings > Syntax Highlighting > Recognition Patterns/Text Drawing Styles" to define the actual syntax highlighting for SKILL. It's a bit of a pian to define the syntax highlighting but you can use existing languages as examples. Otherwise I can email you what I have but it's pretty basic.

    Best regards,

    Olivier

    Hi Olivier,

    Which language looks very simular to SKILL? I'd like to use one that is jus simular in stead of creating my own. Just too much (other) work to do.

     Thanks in a advance.

     Best regards,

    Sjoerd Herder

    Sjoerd,

    SKILL is based on Lisp so you might be able to use Lisp syntax highlighting.

    Hi skillsiao01, Sjoerd, Olivier,

    I just published a demo of a programming editor/IDE I've been working on lately; it has really good SKILL/SKILL++ support:

    http://dd.crosstwine.com/tmp/laiqu6Ri/www/

    (Recent Google Chrome recommended; Firefox is a bit slower.)

    It's mostly feature complete for v1.0, but is only about to enter Beta, so you will probably encounter some bugs. Note that I'm also planning to release a standalone tool soon-ish; it'll work like this:

    $ veda edit ./project/workarea/
    Veda Edit 0.3.0 listening...
        Browse to: http://localhost:59739/www/

    For those preferring Emacs, I'd recommend a slightly-customized Lisp mode—and sticking to the prefix syntax. Note, however, that my code analysis backend is actually independent from the web browser, and can be plugged there too; I have attached a screenshot of Emacs showing function call tips.

    Feel free to send me an email at dd@crosstwine.com if you'd like to apply for the private beta (cf. README.md) and to try it on your own project files!

    Cheers, -D

    P.-S. — Don't hesitate to reload in case some things don't work: the connection it's currently hosted on is a bit wonky :)
