Switching syntax within one file

Switching syntax within one file

Postby Jens on Mon Mar 17, 2014 4:13 am

Is it possible with Sublilme to get it to recognize different parts of the one file as being different languages that require different syntax formats.

I have HTML files with embedded javascript (within <script> </script> tags) and also C# code within defined tags.

I know that I can switch language on the fly, but it is a bit tedious if your are moving from one to the other and back all of the time.

Yes it is possible. As you've pointed out, you can nest JavaScript syntax within HTML files. You need to edit the tmLanguage file. You will define a start and end pattern, and include the relevant scope. You may want to reference here and here. You may also want to investigate how HTML includese JavaScript syntax as a guide.
