Technical details

Sublime Text version support

This package should be only used in Sublime Text 4 or above. Sublime Text 3 support is deprecated. You are still able to install older version (0.9.0) of Julia from Package Control or from GitHub release

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 or cmd+alt+p (macOS) to find out what syntax scope is applied to a certain character.


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