Extra highlighters
« on: March 04, 2018, 10:48:47 am »
Several contributors have provided new syntax highlighters for SynEdit in the bug report

These highlighters now are available on Lazarus Code and Component Repository in folder "components/extrasyn" (

There are about 35 highlighters like ruby, haskel, eiffel, fortran, modula 3, CA-Clipper, prolog, cobol etc. There is a runtime and designtime package: compile the runtime package and install the designtime package. There is also a test application that creates and loads the highlighters. Some of them do not provide sample code and will not show anything in the test application.

After some testing period the packages will also be made available through Online Package Manager.
Mainly Lazarus trunk / fpc 3.2.0 / all 32-bit on Win-10, but many more...

The Lua one I was using in a project, maybe when ready in OPM I can do the switch.

Also the Inno one, really good to have a custom viewer for that setup files.
