I want to highlight FASTA files. The format is:
For lines begin with '>', highlight as HeaderLine. It is the start of a record. For other lines, if /[ATCG]/i , highlight the 4 char into 4 different colors. Set HeaderLine to pink. if /[ACDEFGHIKLMNPQRSTVWXY]/i , highlight as 5 group into 5 different colors. Set HeaderLine to orange. if /[*-?]/ , NOP. if /[\r\n\s]/ , NOP if other printable char exists, set HeaderLine to red.
I only managed to highlight [ATCGatcg] to 4 colors throughout the whole file with 4 separated
patterns. And I donot know how to choose numbers for ‘captures’ in my situation.
BTW: In fact I am writing for TextMate, the ‘foreground’ is fixed in ‘FASTA.tmbundle/Preferences/*.tmPreferences’. I think atom should have similar function.
