Special comment syntax highlighting


#1

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.


#2

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.


#3

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.


#4

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