This project adds CoffeeScript syntax highlighting to the gedit text editor. (and any other gtksourceview compliant text editor)

Installation and Use

  1. Download and place coffee_script.lang in ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs

    Note: if those directories don't exist, make them and gedit will know what to do. Important: if you are using GTK3 (e.g. Gnome Shell) use gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs folder instead of 2.0.

  2. Run gedit and open a CoffeeScript file or Cakefile.

Patches and improvements welcome!

Extra: Install the Ruycius-Mod theme

  1. Download and place rubycius-mod.xml in ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-2.0/styles

    Note: if those directories don't exist, make them and gedit will know what to do. Important: if you are using GTK3 (e.g. Gnome Shell) use gtksourceview-3.0/styles folder instead of 2.0.

  2. Run gedit then Edit > Preferences > Fonts and Colors > Color Scheme > Rubycius-Mod

  3. I like using Liberation Mono for a base font as well which is available within the standard repo for many Linux distros.
