Qmake Edit Mode (qmake.xml v1.0 by flyer-explorer)
Submitted by flyer-explorer on Friday, 16 December, 2011 - 05:17
This is my first stab at an edit mode for qmake's .pro and .pri build files. It has:
  • All the official documented variables
  • Some extra "use the source luke" variables from qmake's sources.
  • All the current (as of QT 4.7)'s buildspecs with shortcuts
To activate the edit mode, you will need to add this to your catalog:

<MODE NAME="qmake" FILE="qmake.xml" FILE_NAME_GLOB="*.{pro,pri}" />

Yes, I know .pro conflicts with prolog, but .pro is the default for qmake as well. If you run into any problems. comments, or suggestions, email me at n-p-o-t-t-s u-c-a-r[dot]edu. Add the circle a where it seems appropriate.

PicASM PIC12X Edit Mode (assembly-pic12x.xml v1.0 by Brad Normand)
Submitted by bradn on Thursday, 10 February, 2011 - 00:48
Edit mode supporting PicASM syntax for PIC12X 12 bit instruction length series chips.

Specifically, this was developed with 12C508 to 12CE519 chips in mind, but is easily adaptable to other PIC microcontrollers. If anyone feels like enhancing this edit mode, go ahead and upload it!

Supports numeric literals in forms like 0xABC123, 0ABC123h, 01010101b, 42d, 01234567o.

Please remember to create an entry in the modes/catalog file or this edit mode won't show up!

An update of Edit Mode for HLSL - DirectX shader language and effect file format. The HLSL Edit Mode is now in the official jEdit distribution, but it haven't been updated for long time. Now I've created new version that supports all new features up to the newest DirectX 11 (Shader Model 5), including these from the upcoming June 2010 version. Recommended FILE_NAME_GLOB is "*.{fx,hlsl}", although the "fx" extension is already taken by "javafx" mode.

Powershell edit mode (powershell.xml v1.0 by James Hamilton)
Submitted by hmhoek on Tuesday, 22 September, 2009 - 19:25
Loosely based on jEdit's perl mode. This highlights just about all regular syntax, although I have not added support for calling generics yet. Ctrl-i indentation also works. Static methods don't get highlighted because when I wrote this lookbehinds weren't supported in mode definitions.
Processing Mode (*.pde) (processing.xml v1.8 by by monkstone )
Submitted by monkstone on Tuesday, 28 July, 2009 - 17:43
A syntax highlighting mode for processing-(2/3). Based on keywords.txt, java.xml and the original version by toxi. instructions on how to install the processing mode at the processing wiki.

Context Free Art (*.cfdg) (cfdg.xml v0.31 by monkstone)
Submitted by monkstone on Tuesday, 28 July, 2009 - 10:45
Syntax Highlight Mode for editing a *.cfdg file (Context Free Art), last revision/update 10 July 2012, including support for Version 3.0 syntax. The names of rule/path/shape are now highlighted as FUNCTION. Curly '{' and '(' brackets are now treated similarly, apart from the possible indent on '}', like C C++ java etc. Other aspects of new syntax in need of refining, but I hope develop that in time. Includes new CF namespace highlighting eg CF::Background and CF::Continuous CF::Impure, most recently added Symmetry directives. You may also be interested in the commando file that I've added in that section allows you to run cfdg from jedit (mainly of interest to linux users, now updated to support quicktime movie output)
