gedit language-spec

Stylus ships with a temporary version of styl.lang for GtkSourceView, based off Yanekk’s work on scss.lang.

Stylus Language Specification for GtkSourceView)

This is a start and provides a basic language spec for GtkSourceView editors such as gedit.

Installation Steps

Download styl.lang to your local language-specs folder:

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs/ && wget https://raw.github.com/stylus/stylus/master/editors/gedit/styl.lang -O ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs/styl.lang

For gtksourceview 3.0 (gedit 3.0), user:

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs/ && wget https://raw.github.com/stylus/stylus/master/editors/gedit/styl.lang -O ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs/styl.lang

Update the MIME database and enjoy Stylus syntax in gedit!

cd ~/.local/share
update-mime-database mime

This is much more enjoyable than having gedit recognize your .styl files as Apache Confs!
