How can I get proper syntax highlighting in yml files, such as users.yml with Sublime Text. As of now there is no highlighting, even erroneous things such as # symbols in string interpolation being treated as a commenting out hashtag.
There is currently a pull request to completely replace the old YAML syntax highlighting definition with a new one. I haven't tested it yet, so I don't know if your particular issue has been addressed, but you can certainly test it for yourself if you wish. Simply create a
YAML folder in your
Packages directory, and save the file I linked to in it as
YAML.sublime-syntax. It should override the current syntax. All of this assumes, of course, that you've upgraded to build 3103 or are using the latest development build, otherwise the
.sublime-syntax format won't be recognized by Sublime.
