Atom syntax help


Hi, new to atom and also new to coding. I would like to somehow make the different tags in atom (html) show different colours like on atoms main website, I uploaded a syntax and ui theme but the tags and well, all text just shows normal

any ideas?



The best place to start is by reading the manual:

To get the required colouring, the Atom editor should know which grammar / language you are using. Putting text to a blank page is not going to help the software. But you could help it…

As soon as you save or open a file as a defined file extension, Atom can identify it as a grammar / language.

Many program languages are already included in the core of Atom… however not all. Add-ons called Packages can expand functionality… including but not limited to program languages.

Are these notes already helpful?
Feel free to be specific to the doubts you are facing.


Nitpicking and off-topic
Using the words “download” and “upload”…
ask yourself which is the bigger of the two communication partners.
It is down when going from big to small.
it is up when going from small to big.
