I write/edit a lot of YAML syntax files, and syntax highlighting really helps determine where I have syntax errors in a YAML file.

Recently I've added two contributors who are not too familiar with computer programming, so it's important they have syntax highlighting to figure out where the errors are. I know Vim and TextMate support it but do other sites support YAML syntax highlighting as well?

In addition to Vim and TextMate...

The following have Yaml modes.

  • Emacs has a yaml-mode
  • Notepad++
  • UltraEdit
  • Sublimetext

There are probably more, but these are the ones I know support YAML off the top of my head.
