These are chat archives for ensime/ensime-atom
@prassee @d6y The rationale behind this is that I don't want to fork language-scala which is a separate project for ctags-based syntax highlighting. There's continuous work there so to merge that in all the time isn't a good idea. However, maybe it would be nice with a one-stop atom scala plugin (being ensime-atom). Before there wasn't a good way to depend on other packages, but there is a pretty straight forward solution now that we can use. I use it already for to depend on hyperclick which provides the code link functionality.
Poll: Should ensime-atom automatically install language-scala?
Next thing is of course semantic highlighting which ensime-server can provide but it isn't really possible to leverage that in Atom yet: https://discuss.atom.io/t/marker-decorations-that-add-style-classes-to-the-actual-text-nodes/20254/7 Many others want this though so it might come in the future. To me it's not a big prio, but would be cool.
