# Improving Editor Support¶

We have recently fixed some bugs in the syntax highlighting support for Textmate and Sublime Text as well as for vim.

## Sublime Text and Textmate¶

Syntax highligting in Sublime Text

Textmate and Sublime Text used the same plugin which can be found on GitHub at https://github.com/dylan-lang/dylan.tmbundle.

• Using Open Dylan specific modifiers (dynamic, sideways, etc) won’t break the highlighting.
• locked and thread variable definitions are highlighted correctly now.
• Keyword / header highlighting at the start of a file is improved.

Also, we’ve submitted a request for this plugin to be made available via Package Control for Sublime Text and hope that this is ready in the near future.

## Vim¶

Syntax highlighting in vim

We extended the Dylan support of vim:

• Improved comment handling such that all comments should be highlighted correctly now.
• Improved operator highlighting.
• Enabled spell checking for strings, comments and headers. To see this, you can toggle :set spell in vim.
• Enabled highlighting for the built-in functions as defined in the DRM.

The files for vim can be found in https://github.com/dylan-lang/dylan-vim.

Patches and further improvements are welcome!
