a spiffy collection of nano syntax highlighting files
most (ok, prettymuch all) of these have been stol*COUGH* politely included in this repository. proper attribution follows at the end of it all... Unless otherwise specified, all files are under the unlicense
WTF do i need these stupid things for???
well, if EMACS or vi are too much of a PITA for you to learn, and all the other text editors you've used are likewise annoying for some reason (yes i'm looking at you Kate & Gedit) then nano is probably your best option! (or if you just like the simplicity of using an extremely lightweight console editor, which is one of the biggest reasons why I use it)
so HTF do i use these things???
one of the easiest ways is like this:
git clone git://github.com/serialhex/nano-highlight.git ~/.nano
then simply add the different *.nanorc files that you want to use to your
~/.nanorc file. for example, this is mine:
## my awesome ~/.nanorc file!!! ## spifftastic nano highlighting nano!! include "~/.nano/nanorc.nanorc" ## Ruby include "~/.nano/ruby.nanorc" ## C/C++ include "~/.nano/c.nanorc" ## Python include "~/.nano/python.nanorc" ## Bourne shell scripts include "~/.nano/bash.nanorc" ## CSS include "~/.nano/css.nanorc" ## HTML include "~/.nano/html.nanorc" ## Markdown include "~/.nano/markdown.nanorc"`
there are other spiffy things you can do in your
.nanorc file, see nanorc manpage online or your very own nanorc manpage for more details.
OOH!!! that's spiffy!! thanks for all your hard work in making all these files!!
umm, yeah, about that, i didnt make all of them, here is the list of who did what with whom:
