Enhanced HTML and CFML Package for Sublime Text 2


This package is designed to provide rich HTML & CFML (ColdFusion) syntax highlighting in Sublime Text 2.


  • Rich syntax highlighting of ColdFusion tags and script elements.
  • Accurate highlighting of illegal unescaped hash # gotchas embedded in HTML code.
  • Correct highlighting of ColdFusion elements only if they are legal, e.g. between <cfoutput> tags.
  • Enhanced highlighting of HTML tags to ease tag recognition in complex embedded code.
Other syntaxes supported with rich highlighting
  • embedded JavaScript and .js files.
  • embedded styles and .css files.
  • markdown .md, .cr and .creole files.
  • HTML .htm and .html files.
  • .JSON and .sublime-settings files.
  • Sublime diff
Colour Schemes - Screenshots
  • Dreamweaver (Classic) colour scheme. Attempts to mimic the actual Adobe™ Dreamweaver™ look as accurately as possible.
  • Dreamweaver (Enhanced) colour scheme. Incorporates some changes and enhancements to the classic look to better highlight embedded ColdFusion variables and functions while maintaining much the same feel.
  • Siddley (Solarized) colour scheme. Uses Ethan Schoonover's awesome solarized colour scheme to create both a dark and light version with rich syntax highlighting.
  • CFBuilder colour scheme. Attempts to mimic the actual Adobe™ CFBuilder™ look as accurately as possible.
  • Suggestions are welcome, please raise an issue to request features
