This question already has an answer here:

Syntax Highlighting for Mathematica on a Blog

There is the above, but I'm not terribly excited to install rogue packages.

For example on github, I share lots of Mathematica code. I see no way to highlight syntax. This may keep Wolfram down in the way of becoming a more often used and more robust programming language.

If the answer is, as I suspect, "no", perhaps a better question is "why not?"

  • $\begingroup$ Textmate has a bundle, which can also be used by Sublime (both are for the mac only as far as I know). However it doesn't include all the highlights I would like, like variable dependencies of functions, Modules and Blocks. It is technically open source and anyone can modify. $\endgroup$ – lalmei Apr 30 '14 at 10:04
  • $\begingroup$ Sublime is actually multi-platform, and the most current fork of the bundle is here $\endgroup$ – lalmei Apr 30 '14 at 10:22
  • $\begingroup$ Very cool. Thank you. $\endgroup$ – Altoidnerd Apr 30 '14 at 10:29
  • $\begingroup$ Am I misreading this is only for OSX? $\endgroup$ – Altoidnerd Apr 30 '14 at 10:31
  • $\begingroup$ I was mistaken at first, Sublime is actually for windows/linux and mac os x and you can use all the bundles from textmate with it. $\endgroup$ – lalmei Apr 30 '14 at 11:02
