uBASIC Syntax Highlighting for BBEdit and TextWrangler

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

TextWrangler-ubasic-syntax-highlighting

This is an example of uBasic syntax highlighting in TextWrangler.

Download the Language Module

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

Installing the Language Module

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
Go-to-library-folder-window

Use the go to folder menu item to navigate to the "Applications Support" folder.

If you are on Mac OS X Lion you can open the your user account's ~/Library/Applications Support folder by using the Finder's Go > Go to Folder... menu item. In the Go to Folder dialogue paste in the text ~/Library/Application Support/ and click Go.

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


Textwrangler-language-modules

This is the TextWrangler Applications Support folder.

Bbedit-language-modules

This is the BBEdit Applications Support folder.

The directory "Language Modules" doesn't exist by default and has to be created. You can create it yourself using the File > New Folder menu item in finder.

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

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