I'm trying to change my syntax colors from styles.less, but it isn't working!


The best way to tweak the syntax is to wrap your syntax style rules with atom-text-editor and then prepend every scope with syntax--. If you want your comments to be blue, for example, you would do the following:

atom-text-editor {
  .syntax--comment {
    color: blue;
