JSON Highlighter for Kate 2007-10-09

I just finished a JSON highlighter for Kate and KWrite. It comes with

  • folding,
  • escape-sequence standout,
  • different colors for keys and values and
  • basic error marking

The highlighter should work for KDE3 as well and can be downloaded here here.

The screenshot shows JSPF draft code. JSPF is the JSON counterpart of the XML-based XML Sharable Playlist Format, short XSPF.

Will be very useful for developing javascript, json projects in, so I hugely appreciate your efforts in developing this 😉

i have one question.

is there any plugin to autocomplete js or php code with kate? i think is the best option to develope code but i miss an autocompletion tool to write code easier.

nice work, but I found a bug:

Perhaps you can fix it?

I hate to sound ignorant, but how do you “use” this plugin?
