Color coordinating tags


#1

I am newer to Atom and code editing in general. On Atom’s website, it shows code in different colors and I think this would be useful to make certain tags stay in certain colors for differentiation. Is there any way to do this? Or what is the main purpose of Atom to have colors in the code?

If you have a language package for the language in question, the colors won’t change unless you change your syntax theme. The purpose of the colors is primarily to quickly tell apart different syntactic parts of a language, though it can also be useful to show where errors in syntax have slipped in, like if you paste code poorly and forget a quote mark.
