I’m in the process of converting my own vscode extension over to atom and am having some difficulty. I’ve implemented a language server for language called kerboscript. It’s used to generate autopiloting scripts for the popular indie game kerbal space program. Check out main project documentation here if your interested.
The main repo is in this repo but the atom client is specifically located here
My first step was port over the syntax highlighting from vscode. I have a textmate grammar which works as I would like in vscode but I can’t seem to get it to activate in atom. So far I’ve simply copied my grammer into the grammars folder renamed .json to .cson and add the filetypes for “ks” which is the file extension. I’ve open the atom client in atom at the level of the package.json and reload which to my understanding should activate the package in a develop mode. I have one sample file in the samples folder which I would expect to be highlighted but it only identifies it as a plain text file.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know this is fairly vague but I’m not sure were else to find resources for these sorts of questions.
