syntax highlight for scala

Asked by Parth Malwankar


Launchpad does not seem to be highlighting scala syntax. E.g.:
Its seems to work well for other languages like ruby and python.

When I try the same locally with loggerhead + pygments installed from packages (ubuntu 9.10) scala syntax highlight works beautifully.
Is this support planned?

This might be because the version of python-pygments on the Launchpad machines is 0.9-2. Can you find out if Scala was supported in that version?

Launchpad is always run on the most recent LTS version of Ubuntu (8.04/Hardy). The next LTS is due out in April 2010, and Launchpad's servers will be upgraded a short time after that, so Scala support should arrive by then at the latest.

Thanks for the update Gavin.

This makes sense. It looks like Scala support came in version 0.11 ( hence the lack of syntax highlight.
