Scope Coloring (not just syntax coloring)

Scope Coloring (not just syntax coloring)

Postby alexandergunnarson on Thu Jun 13, 2013 4:46 pm


Scope coloring was first suggested by Douglas Crockford. So far the only plugin for Sublime Text 2 (that I know of) that implements scope coloring has been made solely for JavaScript at https://github.com/mazurov/sublime-levels.

It would be great if this feature could be implemented for all languages, especially Clojure and Scheme (for me).

Difference between scope coloring and syntax highlighting:

I agree, adding this for all languages would be a must. :)

There it was: ;-) Douglas talking about Context Highlighting (Coloring)

Probably, it's easy to color functions, but hard to detect the right level or variables. Probably (I hope) I'm wrong with it.

Wowowow. Guys. I forgot to talk about what I'm thinking. And i thinking it should be a Switch with a hot key. Eventually, if it will be a Key that instantly switches highlighting when I holding key pressed and switched back when I release it. It should be brilliant useful thing for almost any modern functional language developers.
