Disable $ Highlighting for PHP $variables

Does what it says on the tin! That is to say it stops Atom from including $ in the selection when double clicking a PHP $variable;


  • In Atom, open Settings (Preferences on Mac)
  • Go to Install section
  • Search for language-php-no-dollar-highlight package. Once found, click Install button.
  • Done!
You can’t perform that action at this time.
