Special comment syntax highlighting


In open source projects thats well commented, you’ll get some comment syntax highlighting like @params, or XXX. It doesn’t carry over to atom completely, and I’d like to see complete list of possible markings with syntax within atom that the official comment package does not have.


I’m not too sure what you mean by “It doesn’t carry over to atom completely” and “the official comment package”, but I’ll try to answer.

@params-style documentation is tokenized by the primary language package. TODO, XXX is tokenized by language-todo. You can view the list here.


Ty for the list, still don’t know what XXX stands for. What do you mean primary language package, I got “language javascript” and it doesn’t do @params.


quite simply searching for @params/@summary in atom packages doesn’t immediately yield results. While github will highlight these words.
