Project Specific Syntax Settings
This package allows syntax settings to be specified per project.
.sublime-project file, you just need to add a
syntax_override section, like so.
syntax_override section can contain as many key/value pairs as you like.
The easiest way to construct these key/value pairs is to follow these steps:
- Open an existing file in your project.
- Set the syntax you would like to use for that file with the
View > Syntax > ...menus or the command palette.
- Right click in the file editor area, and select the
Project Specific Syntax > Copy syntax setting to clipboardmenu item. This menu item is also available via the command palette.
- Open your project file for editing via the
Project > Edit Projectmenu or the command palette.
- Paste the new key/value pair into the
syntax_overridesection of your project file. Be sure to add any necessary commas to separate multiple key/value pairs so your project file is still valid JSON.
If you need more control, you can construct your own key/value pairs. The key should be a regular expression that will be matched against the name of the file. Note that the
.html in the example above has to be escaped to
\. since it will otherwise match any character. And since this is a JSON string, we need to escape the slash, so we end up with
The value in the key/value pair should be an array containing two or more strings. All but the last string in this array are the names of the package directories containing the syntax file and the last is the name of the syntax. Root around in Sublime Text's directory structure to find files that end with
.tmLanguage. The names of these files (minus the
.tmLanguage extension) are what you would use for the last string. Typically, you will only have two strings, a directory name and the syntax file name (minus
.tmLanguage file extension), but this is dependent on the package's directory structure.
