I'm working on the Inno Setup based installer. I'd prefer to edit the script file in Sublime Text, but it doesn't appear to detect the language and doesn't enable syntax highlighting. I have failed so far to find a plugin for Inno Setup highlighting.

If such plugin does not exist, maybe there's a syntax highlighting that is not a perfect match, but looks reasonably meaningful to edit the script in comfort? If so, what is the syntax highlighting and how to enable it?

  • I was confused whether to write to Stack Overflow or here, but in the end decided that the question is about using software (essentially a text editor). So the question is not an actual programming question even if I'm using the editor to program.

There is a package for Inno Setup (syntax definitions, completions and build system), available on Package Control.

  • Yes! Apparently it's only available for Sublime Text 3, that's why I couldn't find it. I've upgraded, finally, and it works well.

    The package only started to require Sublime Text 3 with the latest update. Should you have reason to go back to Sublime Text 2, you can install the package in version 5.x!

  • When I attempted to just install the package in Sublime Text 2, I have pressed Ctrl+Shift+P, selected "Package Control: Install Package" and searched for "Inno", but didn't find anything. Is there a way to install an old package version via Package Control? (I don't really think I'll need it, I'm quite satisfied with ST3 so far...)

  • Just for the record: the package now supports both versions (again)
