uBASIC Syntax Highlighting for BBEdit and TextWranglerEdit

uBasic Syntax Highlighting is available for the BBEdit and TextWrangler code editors on the Mac.

TextWrangler-ubasic-syntax-highlighting

Download the Language Module Edit

The uBASIC Language Module can be downloaded here: ubasic.plist.zip

Installing the Language Module Edit

Step 1. Download and unzip the ubasic.plist.zip file to your Mac desktop.

Step 2. To enable uBasic syntax highlighting for BBEdit save the file ubasic.plist to the following location:

   ~/Library/Application Support/BBEdit/Language Modules/ubasic.plist

for TextWranger the ubasic.plist file goes in:

   ~/Library/Application Support/TextWrangler/Language Modules/ubasic.plist

If you are on Mac OS X Lion you can open the hidden ~/Library/Applications Support folder by using the Finder's Go > Go to Folder... menu item.

Go-to-folder-menu-item

In the Go to Folder dialogue paste in the text ~/Library/Application Support/ and click the Go button.

Go-to-library-folder-window

This will take you into the Applications Support folder. From here you can open up either the TextWrangler or BBedit folders.

TextWrangler Applications Support FolderEdit

This is a screenshot of the TextWrangler Applications Support folder. Drag the file ubasic.plist into the Language Modules folder. Textwrangler-language-modules

BBEdit Applications Support Folder Edit

This is a screenshot of the BBEdit Applications Support folder. Drag the file ubasic.plist into the Language Modules folder. Bbedit-language-modules

If you haven't used a Languages Module before, the directory "Language Modules" might not exist. You can create it yourself using the File > New Folder menu item in the Finder. Rename the new folder item "Language Modules".

After you copy the Language Module file into place, restart the text editor.

Now, when you open a uBASIC .BAS file, TextWranger performs syntax highlighting which makes editing code faster and easier.

Alternate Installation Technique Edit

Save the following xml file under your user directory: /Users/<your account>/Library/Application Support/BBEdit/Language Modules/ubasic.plist
