Cross-editor contextual syntax highlighter via Typed BNF


Do you like “one grammar, syntax highlighters everywhere?”


PS: NOTE that parentheses in function arguments and parameters have different colors.

PPS: The amount of code required to implement such a cross-editor SH(~100 lines), is many orders of magnitude smaller than for the tmLanguage system(~10000 lines and unreadable).

build grammar for VScode

build grammar for pygments
