Syntax highlighting for gedit

Post by untitled.bmp »

I've been surprised that no one yet implemented syntax highlighting of CFDG files for gedit.
So here it is:
(1.74 KiB) Downloaded 1232 times
To install just extract archive to ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs directory.
Adapted for Context Free 3 and gedit 3.

If you have any remarks and suggestions, I'll be glad to hear them.

As a bonus, here are the simple script to make contextfreeing in gedit easier:

Code: Select all




cfdg "$cfdg_file" "$png_file" -w $size -h $size && $viewer "$png_file"
To use it, choose Tools > Manage External Tools in the menu, click little "+" button and copy-paste this script in the field to the right. Then click "Shortcut Key" field, and press some key combination, for example CTRL+R. When you press it again after closing configuration window, your currently opened file will be rendered by cfdg and result presented to you.

Thanks for the file.
Being on Mint 17, I had to extract it in folder /usr/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs
I had an error on my computer when parsing that file, but commented lines 158 through 160, and it works like a charm now:

Code: Select all

    <context id="cfdg" class="no-spell-check">
       <!--  <context ref="def:c-like-comment"/>
        <context ref="def:c-like-comment-multiline"/>
        <context ref="def:c-like-close-comment-outside-comment"/>  -->
        <context ref="numbers"/>
