#2623 [ANN] GitHub now highlights Fantom code

rkoeninger Fri 28 Jul 2017

GitHub recently deployed linguist 5.1.0, which includes support for highlighting Fantom.

Highlighting is based on my fork of Matthew Giannini's sublime-fantom repo, with grammar updated so linguist would recognize it.

Wow Robert, that's pretty sweet and good to know!

I quite like the basic spell checker too... at a later date, I may add it to Ask Fanny!

From what I can gather from this article, BitBucket uses Code Mirror.

While we're on the topic code highlighting, I don't suppose anyone fancies a crack at adding Fantom support to Code Mirror's list of supported languages!?

BitBucket uses (or least used to use) Pygments -- @ivan originally got that working for Fantom. Still seems to be working. Code Mirror support would be cool though. The more the merrier :)

Hi rkoeninger,

I've added your spell checker to the Ask Fanny website to give "Did you mean XXX?" suggestions. It works pretty well, so thanks!

But I did notice that whilst it removes letters to give suggestions, it doesn't add letters. For example:

Typing Booly gives a suggestion of Bool, but typing Boo does not.
