Use TPL syntax highlighting in Atom with Nova Framework

Using Atom editor is great visually the only issue is out the box .tpl is not recognized or is recognized as Smarty tpl. Thankfully the solution to this is simple.

Since the template engine on Nova is based on Blade install language-blade package. Once installed Atom needs to associate tpl with blade. To do this go to your settings and click Open Config Folder next click on config.cson look for Core: and add:

customFileTypes:
      "text.html.php.blade": [
        "tpl"
      ]

Restart Atom. Now every .tpl file will have syntax highlighting.

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
