Ruby Syntax Highlighter for Nano


#1

I spent around an hour looking for a Ruby syntax highlighter for Nano.
I couldn’t find one so I decided to try my best at creating my own. If
anyone has any suggestions or wants to help improve it, be my guest.

Get it here: http://jungsource.pastebin.com/477379

To install:
Copy and add all of the text from pastebin to the bottom of ~/.nanorc
If .nanorc does not exist create it.

Note: Tested using Nano 1.2.4 in Fedora Core 3 Linux

Hey Jason,

Good work… i’ve searched for it too, but after looking through the
existing
styles i decided it’s not worth the effort and switched to vim
instead…
However, nano has been/and for really quick editing still is, my
favorite
editor.

thx a lot for your effort :slight_smile:

One quick edit to your script.

If you swap the following two segments, the highlighter won’t think “#
{expression}” is a comment.

Words in Quotes

#color green “”[^"]""
color green “”[^"]
"|qq|.|"
color green "’[^’]
’"

Comments

color brightyellow “#.*”
