Scope highlighting (like BlueJ or EditBox)


#1

I don’t know if it would be possible to develop a package that highlights code blocks, like BlueJ or EditBox (for Eclipse).

It’s very useful, especially if you have several nested code blocks or for beginners developers.
I have no expierence in Atom package develop but which part of Atom API should I use if I try to develop a package like this?

Thank you.

Take a look to the Decoration and Marker docs, maybe it’s what you’re looking for!
