I’m just starting out with Atom, and I wish to write a package to support a language that I frequently use, for which no package exists.
All I wish to accomplish is have the package activated when plain text files with a given filename extension are loaded, and do color highlighting of operators and keywords. Dirt simple, none of the other fancy stuff that (as I understand) is possible to do in a language package.
Hoping not to reinvent the wheel, I’ve looked at the contents of a couple of other “language-xxx” packages enough to see that there’s so much functionality going on that I don’t even know where to start removing things.
I tried the package generator, but the shell it created seemed to be far too complex given what I wish to accompish.
So, what are your thoughts on the easiest way to get to where I wish to be?
Thanks in advance!
