What syntax highlighting would you recommend for writing spreadsheet formulas, like those used in Excel, Google Sheets, Numbers, etc?

# Syntax for spreadsheet formulas

This syntax is inspired by Tex/LaTeX, if I remember correctly. The easiest way would be to use the LaTeX syntax and wrap your formulas in `$`

, i.e. `$a^{b+x}$`

.

Thanks for the suggestion @FichteFoll, but it doesn’t pickup syntax very well. So far C seems to do the best job, but picks up on very little.

Apologies for digging up this old post, but if it’s any help, I’d like to share the following:

I had been struggling with this issue as well. A few weeks ago I finally got fed up and made my own:

Excel formula - Package Control

Excel formula - Github

So far it’s been smooth sailing when using it with all kinds of Excel formulas.

Edit:

As of now, v1.1.3 is the latest version. Currently waiting for Package Control to check the repo for the update. I forgot to remove `(test)`

from the syntax `name:`

before committing it to Github.
