Hey everyone. In the EasyClangComplete package I am developing there is a need to show highlighted errors and warnings in the code. Currently, I show all the errors by calling
invalid.illegal as scope. This does the trick, but shows all the errors with a single color.
To separate errors and warnings I assume I would need to call
view.add_regions two times - one for errors and one for warnings with different scopes passed into the calls.
Looking at http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/3/scope_naming.html I did not find any scopes I could use directly, so it seems I would need to define my own scopes. So to this I have basically two questions:
- passing the new scope, e.g.
view.add_regions is all that I need to define custom scopes? No need to define a syntax file, right?
- how to generate custom colors for my custom scopes? Can I setup a very small color scheme to cover only the scopes I care about and distribute it with my package or is there another way? Would the scoped not defined in this small scheme be picked up by another color scheme?
Some related issues that did not help me much (but maybe I have just misundestood them):
35200 - leads to the scope naming website referenced above with a hint to use the existing scopes, which is not exactly the use-case I'm targeting as I don't intend to provide a complete colorscheme.
33019 - also leads to the scope naming website with approximately same suggestions.
18842 - an old issue that is very related to what I am asking here, saying its impossible to do what I want to do without modifying an existing theme file, so I was wondering is there is any change since then.
