Crimson Editor Syntax highlighting
#1
A few people have asked me for the Crimson Editor syntax highlighting files for CML.

I have attached them here.

Once you have installed Crimson Editor, place the .spc and .key files in the spec directory, then place the extension.manifest and firstline.cqc files in the link directory.

To make the highlighting work correctly, the CML source file must have CQC somewhere in the first line. So just put in a comment like //CQC.

Cheers

Rohan

Maybe you could put them over on the CQC users webs ite as well. In the download section somewhere

Is anyone using this? I just stumbled upon this by accident... sounds interesting. Its so hard to search through other code files. I'm hoping someone has a magic bullet.

Instead of Dean improving the IDE he should figure out a way to make an external one integrate Smile

I use Crimson with the syntax highlighting 100% of the time for driver development. I only use the ide for syntax checking, debugging, and production of packages. There are too many non standard command keystrokes, lack of highlight, etc in the test harness to use on a routine basis. YMMV

FYI Crimson editor has now been replaced with Emerald editor.

Not sure what the differences are, other than one is red and one is green....

Emerald was to be the follow-on open source project superseding Crimson. The original author ending up open sourcing both Crimson & Emerald. Last time I looked a few volunteers has done some minor updates to Crimson a few tears ago, Emerald was untouched for 7 years.

I use Crimson as well based on reco's here. Works great. Just installed the files above, and works great! Thanks for reviving this as I forgot all about it.

I'm going to try it now. Looks like the latest is here.

...okay. I'm back. It works. Very basic. Once I set syntax highlighting to auto it woke up.

I don't suppose there is a way for CQC to at least syntax check an external file?

Maybe once I get better at CML I can write a whole program in Crimson and then copy-paste into CQC in one go Smile
