A Kate (KDE Advanced Text Editor) syntax highlighting definition for the Remind scripting language
Remind is a scripting language-driven reminder program for *nix systems licensed under the GPL.
remind.vim has been available since 2006 for Vim users. This is a definition file for Kate users. It makes entry of reminders via Kate more enjoyable, and increases accuracy. Before using sytax coloring, I would often forget the
MSG keyword. With syntax coloring, mistakes like this are visually obvious.
This definition seeks to:
- highlight common entry errors
- give prominence to the content (the date, time and message body), not the keywords
- use the user-specified color palette
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/katepart5/syntax wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rkelly/kate-remind/master/remind.xml \ -O ~/.local/share/katepart5/syntax/remind.xml
Other Kate Versions/Linux Distros
Other versions of Kate, or other Linux distributions may require you to save the syntax.xml file instead to one of the following locations:
syntax directory may not exist, and will have to be created. After installing the file, Kate must be restarted before it will read it.
After installation, Remind syntax highlighting will automatically start when opening a
*.remind file. It can also be set manually in the bottom right corner of the Kate window. The Remind syntax is filed in the Scripts folder.
This definition is usable as-is, but is by no means complete. Contributions are welcome.
