Multi syntax highlighting


#1

Hello,
I would like to ask about “multi syntax highlight”, for example I have .php file with mix html and I would like to use snippet for php and html. So I need to manual change syntax?

I don’t think so, since the PHP grammar does use .html tags. Are you not able to use HTML snippets in the HTML portions or PHP snippets in the PHP portions? What version of Atom are you on (and can you reproduce the issue in safe mode (atom --safe))? Thanks.

It does support the mix of html + php. There was a glitch in detecting what is the host language. In your screenshot sublime have deltected the host is PHP and that’s what the update will probably do.

Hmm, ok.
So now:

Syntax looks fine, but for example, emmet doesn’t work good .
