Description of the Change

Now that language-sql has begin/end matches, injections are needed so that the PHP patterns are matched inside the begin/end ones as well. Unfortunately, due to some annoyances with how injections work, I had to place the injections inside of the wrapper html.cson rather than php.cson, which would make much more sense.

I am also having trouble getting interpolation to work properly. Seems like it's not picking up source.php correctly, which is discouraging...

Alternate Designs

I would love to hear proposals for alternate designs.


Embedded SQL strings should no longer have the chance of ruining syntax highlighting for the rest of the file.

Possible Drawbacks

Grammar becomes harder to parse due to the injections being in a separate file.

Applicable Issues

Fixes #321

/cc @Ingramz it would be super appreciated if you could take a look at this and see if you can figure out why the interpolation includes aren't working.

@50Wliu I took a quick look at it and it seems like the culprit is that you are trying to include from a repository of a different grammar inside the injection: source.php#interpolation_double_quoted.

When I copied these repository items to the html grammar's repository and included those instead, it seemed to work without issues. Indirectly including source.php#interpolation_double_quoted from local repository within the injection did not work either.

Whether it is supposed to work in TextMate remains to be seen once I get home from work.

Overall, the idea of using injections seems suitable for at least PHP. Having to do it from the html grammar is somewhat suboptimal, but since nested injections definitely do not work in TextMate, this is probably the best chance we got if it works.

My tests with TextMate show that including from other grammar's repository should work in injections too, so it is likely that something needs to be fixed in first-mate to get this to work.
