Add syntax highlighting for the World of Warcraft API in Lua files in Atom.

Example screenshot using the One Dark theme

This package provides language-lua and adds the following scopes: - WoW API functions. - Functions implemented in Lua that are used by the UI. -[Widget]: Widget methods. - Functions that are references to standard library functions, functions added to standard libraries, and added basic functions. (Lua functions) - Event names.

To change the syntax highlighting for these scopes, you need to add styles to the style.less file in your ~/.atom directory.

You can open this file in an editor from the File > Stylesheet… menu.

For example, you could add the following rule to your ~/.atom/styles.less file to tweak the color of WoW functions: less atom-text-editor::shadow { { &.api, &.widget { color: darken(@syntax-color-function, 15%); } &.framexml { color: lighten(@syntax-color-function, 10%); } } }

Themes probably have a set of variables defined that you can use, but of course you can always do your own thing.
