One beauty of Kicad is that the schematic, pcb and library files are plaint text. For this reason I find myself more and more frequently using a text editor to manipulate these files.
While the files are easy to parse by the eye, adding some highlighting to the text could help navigating the files, e.g. like most editors highlight C code or other programming languages.
I’m currently using Kate as my main editor which uses XML files for highlight definitions and looking at sample files and the Kate documentation on this topic immediately gives me a headache …
Has anybody done some work on a highlight definition file for Kicad Schematic and/or PCB files?
I’d even go so far and ditch Kate for an editor with simpler highlighting definition syntax.
