My old documentation was hand-coded in HTML. I thought that would be the right way to go at first because, after all, the language was “simple”. Then again, how can anything be simple when it’s over 6000 lines of code? Having become tired of coding documentation, I decided to switch to markup, and with a shiny new logo and a nice docs generator, I now have more professional-looking documentation on Github.
Tag: syntax highlighting
Rainbow syntax highlighters were created for LISP and related languages, not C++ and imperative languages, but they can be quite useful. Sadly, nothing is easy, and trying to find an IDE that worked on my PC and allowed custom rainbow syntax highlighting proved to be more difficult to find than I imagined. However, I was determined to not write an entire IDE just for syntax highlighting. In fact, I was determined to keep it simple and avoid even having to learn Eclipse (so that I could write an extension). My persistence paid off.
