In NotepadQQ, I would like to add G-code and M-code programing language definitions/syntax. Is this possible for a user to do this? How is it done? I found a post about how to add a language https://github.com/notepadqq/notepadqq/issues/164 but it is a bit beyond my knowledge base. Here is the gist of the post:

It's not possible to migrate XMLs from Notepad++ to Notepadqq. They're completely different formats. The best way is to write it from scratch.

This is the CodeMirror documentation for writing modes (aka syntax highlighters)

And this is an example of a syntax highlighter for makefiles written by a Notepadqq contributor

It seems some knowledge of a formating language is needed to create such a makefile. And I don't see how to implement it into notepadqq on my computer.

  • Hello! I'm sorry, but I don't think this is specifically an Ubuntu question. It might be better to put it on stack overflow. Thanks! – rplaughlin Oct 30 '17 at 3:17
  • @rplaughlin, I wasn't sure where to post it and I had found NPQQ posts here. Actually, Askubuntu has 51 NPQQ posts to Stack Exchange's 9. I do understand that Ask Ubuntu is "for Ubuntu-related questions". And, I checked on Stack Overflow and questions about, "software tools commonly used by programmers," is in their bailiwick. So, I'll post over there. Can I delete this question then? – Geoffrey Wheeler Oct 30 '17 at 4:59
  • @rplaughlin: Askubuntu has a tag for notepadqq while stackoverflow doesn't. – Geoffrey Wheeler Oct 30 '17 at 6:00
  • @HolyHarmonica The question is on-topic, so don't worry. You're welcome to leave it as is. – wjandrea Oct 30 '17 at 6:14
  • Ok, thanks! I'm glad you were able to investigate that further. – rplaughlin Oct 30 '17 at 22:52
