Julia language support for Sublime Text 2/3.

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Unicode tab completion (like the REPL)
  • Auto-indentation
  • Snippets


If you haven't already, install Package Control, then select Julia from the Package Control: Install Package dropdown list in the Command Palette.

Manual installation

Clone the repository into ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/. (The path may be different depending on OS and version.)


Highlight example

Don't hesitate to open an issue if something looks wrong or if you think that something can be done better.

Technical details

Sublime Text version support

Sublime Text 3 Build 3103 or later will use Julia.sublime-syntax which provides superior highlighting. Older versions of Sublime Text will use Julia.tmLanguage, which is no longer maintained.

Custom colors

The default colors are chosen to satisfy most people. However, you might prefer to highlight macros, types, function calls etc. in different colors. This can be achieved by modifying the color associated with the syntax scope, such as variable.macro, in your color scheme. Use the shortcut ctrl+shift+alt+p to find out what syntax scope is applied to a certain character.


  • Run the build command (ctrl+shift+b) on the syntax_test_julia.jl file.
  • Keep the tests updated. Fixed issues should generally get a test.
