An Oracle blog about NetBeans for PHP

Initial Support for Neon File Type

Hi all in the year of PHP 5.4! Today, we would like to introduce you our support for a new file type. It's called NEON and it's a kind of configuration file developed by the Nette Foundation (authors of the Nette Framework). All of you surely know INI, or YAML files, so NEON is something similar.

You can find more information about this file type (its syntax, differences between NEON and YAML, etc.) on its official web site.

So from now, we can recognize these files and we know how to color them (as you can see below). Isn't that nice?

Neon Syntax Coloring

And why we decided to support this file type? Because it's used by some other tools which we'll support too ;) (stay tuned!)

That's all for today and as usual, please test it and if you find something strange, don't hesitate to file a new issue (component php, subcomponent Neon files). Thanks.
