Default [PLUGIN][GEANY] Edify Syntax Highlighter

Hi,

Yesterday, an article featured the XDA Portal, talking about a new "code editor" for the Edify language. I wasn't much interested in it, because:
1. Windows, duh!
2. Porting ROMs (which I seldom do, though), or editing updater script, I use Linux.
3. Why a new editor, when language support can be added easily to *most* of the editors? This limits user functionality, the way user had been interacting with software, and would be missing out high on features :rolleyes:

So, I decided to add edify syntax highlighting support to the popular text editor, Geany (yes, I don't use Gedit, and hate it. Period.).

Here's how you'd go about doing this one ;)

All changes are perfectly revertible, so, you won't have to risk reinstalling Geany :fingers-crossed:

First, copy your filetype_extensions.conf to your home folder using the following command:

Code:
cp /usr/share/geany/filetype_extensions.conf ~/.config/geany/
Open it up, and add the following line, (below "Docbook=*.docbook;" preferably, to maintain alphabetical order):
Code:
Edify=*updater-script*;
Download the following file: https://raw.github.com/vineethraj49/...pes.Edify.conf

And place it within your ~/.config/geany/filedefs/ folder.

Hopefully, those are all the changes that need to be done :)

Close Geany, and open up any updater-script file, and hopefully, you should have syntax highlighting :laugh:

I don't really know. I'd have to get Windows installed first, then, get to research on Notepad++
