Highlight TODO and similar keywords in comments and strings
To highlight keywords turn on
hl-todo-mode in individual buffers
or use the the global variant
You can customize the keywords that are recognized by customizing
hl-todo-keyword-faces either through the customization interface
or by setting the variable directly in your init file, for example:
(setq hl-todo-keyword-faces '(("TODO" . "#FF0000") ("FIXME" . "#FF0000") ("DEBUG" . "#A020F0") ("GOTCHA" . "#FF4500") ("STUB" . "#1E90FF")))
This package also provides commands for moving to the next or
previous keyword, to invoke
occur with a regexp that matches all
known keywords, and to insert a keyword. If you want to use these
commands, then you should bind them in
(define-key hl-todo-mode-map (kbd "C-c p") 'hl-todo-previous) (define-key hl-todo-mode-map (kbd "C-c n") 'hl-todo-next) (define-key hl-todo-mode-map (kbd "C-c o") 'hl-todo-occur) (define-key hl-todo-mode-map (kbd "C-c i") 'hl-todo-insert)
See this list on the Emacswiki for other packages that implement the same basic features, but which might also provide additional features that you might like, but which I don't deem necessary.
See FAQ and Common Issues if something isn't working as expected.
