I'm looking for an editor I can easily add to or change rules for syntax highlighting

I'm using Atom on an Ubuntu based system and almost love it.

However, I want to change the syntax highlighting rules without having to dig into Atom. Atom's looks to be amazingly powerfully and flexibly customizable, but it's far too much for me.

What I most want to do is control the colors for individual things like, for example, /****comments***/ and I'd like to have it recognize variable type names by more than just the underscore-t at the end. My initials are dk, so I'd like to name my variable types with an underscore-d-k.


And have them highlit with the same, or a similar color to underscore-t type names.

That's the total extent of the changes I want to make. So Atom seems overkill for my purposes.

Sorry for the rambling nature of this post. I'm just fuzzy this morning.

I would add Notepad++, which is a very good open source programming editor for Windows.

Shouldn't this list be put into the LQ Wiki? So many dead links by now.
