Extends original Railscasts theme with additional syntax highlighting for Markdown, LESS, HTML, Handlebars and more.

This theme attempts to add all the good things found in sublime-monokai-extended theme by Jon Schlinkert to the original TextMate Railscasts theme by Ryan Bates.

This theme supports all of the color keys found in Monokai and Monokai Extended themes. This improves the functionality of the syntax highlighting plugins.

All of the values set in this theme were analyzed first. No global search and replace was performed.
