readme.md

This project adds CoffeeScript syntax highlighting to the gedit text editor. (and any other gtksourceview compliant text editor)

Easy Installation

Clone and execute install.sh.

Installation and Use

  1. Download and place coffee_script.lang in ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs

    Note: if those directories don't exist, make them and gedit will know what to do. Important: if you are using GTK2 (e.g. old Gnome) use gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs folder instead of 3.0.

  2. Run gedit and open a CoffeeScript file, Cakefile, or IcedCoffeeScript file.

Patches and improvements welcome!

Extra: Install the Ruycius-Mod theme

  1. Download and place rubycius-mod.xml in ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles

    Note: if those directories don't exist, make them and gedit will know what to do. Important: if you are using GTK2 (e.g. old Gnome) use gtksourceview-2.0/styles folder instead of 3.0.

  2. Run gedit then Edit > Preferences > Fonts and Colors > Color Scheme > Rubycius-Mod

  3. I like using Liberation Mono for a base font as well which is available within the standard repo for many Linux distros.
