Custom Language Packages


#1

Hello,

I started using Atom recently and I have to admit that I am quite impressed. However, I wanted to create a custom language package for the Scripting Language Squirrel. But as I mentioned before, Im new to all of this (been using Sublime Text before, so it is kind of familiar to me). Is there any advice / tutorial / documentation on how to create custom language / syntax packages?

There certainly is! You can start with converting the TextMate Squirrel bundle using this tutorial.

Thanks for your answer. I’ve tried it and have a package called “Language Squirrel” now. However, when I open up a *.nut file, it does not highlight anything and I dont have snippets. Is there more I need to configure?

Edit: I’ve found the issue: ‘fileType’ was “.nut”, had to be “nut”
