Syntax highlighting add-in
Is there a new format for defining syntax modes in Xamarin Studio? I have a syntax mode XML file that works in Xamarin Studio 4.0.1, but it stopped working when I upgraded to 4.0.2.
I noticed that you changed the format of syntax highlighting color scheme files from XML to JSON, and I'm wondering if something similar happened with the syntax highlighting files.
I'm attaching the entire .mpack file, which enables syntax highlighting for files with an .akk extension.
And here's sample text that does not appear completely when the add-in is installed:
# Household size
Tnum HouseholdSize(Thing p) =
Thanks for your help.
Only the color scheme names changed & some colors were added. I wanted to be a bit more compatible to vs.net.
I don't think that the syntax highlighting files are better as JSON because I need the xml structure there. That wouldn't map cleanly in JSON.
The color names changed slightly to make it easier to use the colors as well. For syntax modes it should be done with some renames - btw. the DefaultStyle.json is a good reference because it now contains all available colors.
btw. the color changes should've been included in 4.0 but were finished too late :/
