Generic Config Language

Build Status Package Version Package Downloads Dependency Status

Provides basic syntax highlighting for configuration files that are just composed of comments or non-comments with no particular structure, like .gitignore or .gitattributes files.

Sample configuration

The package supports formats which use # or ; to introduce comments.

Auto-matching "probable" config files

Many generic configs in the wild use no standard file extension, or any extension at all. The package is able to match unfamiliar configs as long as they contain "comment-like" lines:

# When updating this file, etc/e/eterm-colour should be
# rebuild with "make e/eterm-colour" in the etc directory.
cub=\E[%p1%dD,
kcud1=\EOB,
cud=\E[%p1%dB,#refs104
#cuf1=\E[C, # HACK: refs#104
setaf=\E[%p1%{30}%+%dm,
cuf=\E[%p1%dC,
#rmcup=\E[?47l,
# rs2 may need to be added
smcup=\E[?47h,

With the package's default configuration, the above code will look like this:

Sample 2

You can customise how the package interprets "comment-like" by tweaking the automatchPattern field in the package settings. By default, the grammar is activated for any unknown file containing lines which start with # or ; :

# Comment
#1 - Not
#2 - considered
#3 - comments
; Comment
;1 - As above…
