currently, for syntax highlighting, AE Studio uses a temporary hack that @milenradkov.chain thankfully brought up some time ago. It’s missing important type highlightings by now though, so we definitely need to update.
The bespoke library is MS’ open source
monaco, which basically runs under the hood of Visual Studio Code, so it’s highly relevant and worth to stick to.
Could we maintain the syntax highlighting module for that library as part of
aesophia, please ? If possible, right in the repo ?
Could you share some input @milenradkov.chain on what was necessary to setup that syntax highlighting module and maintain it ? Maybe @hanssv.chain would like to read along
It should be somewhere here I guess https://github.com/mradkov/ngx-monaco-editor but I can’t seem to find it… EDIT: Nevermind: https://github.com/mradkov/vscode-sophia/blob/master/syntaxes/sophia.json
Can we retry submitting it to MS again please ? IIRC the last time they said we provided “too many examples” ?
