A brief post on getting this done on Atom and Vim.
language-haproxy Atom plugin through either Atom UI or
apm install language-haproxy
When opening an
haproxy.cfg file, Atom will detect and highlight accordingly.
Syntax highlighting in Vim for HAProxy configuration has been available for more than 10 years it seems from VimAwesome. To enable this, just clone the Github repository, copy the
.vim file inside
syntax/ folder to
git clone https://github.com/vim-scripts/haproxy.git mkdir -p $HOME/.vim/syntax cp haproxy/syntax/haproxy.vim $HOME/.vim/syntax/
Now add the following line to
au BufRead,BufNewFile haproxy* set ft=haproxy
Now you should be able to see syntax highlighting enabled for HAProxy configuration files in Vim.
