Add Syntax Highlighting Support for ion
Created by: GlenDC
If we're serious about pushing ion we probably want to start providing syntax highlighting for ion scripts in the most important places.
- add support for ion code block syntax highlighting to highlight.js, the library used by the technology used to render the redox-os book: https://github.com/redox-os/book/issues/67 (in progress)
add support for ion code block syntax highlighting to linguist, the repository used by GitHub for language detection and syntax highlighting of scripts and code blocks in markdown. Adding ion support would mean to create a
ion.tmbundlerepository and add it as a submodule to the linguist repository;
I think these are the 2 most important places, as they are the one that show ion scripts publicly. In the future we or others could than also start adding syntax highlighting support to commonly used editors.
