But other than those small omissions, I personally think this is quite useful and will be using it myself. Feel free to comment if you notice anything I’ve missed out or got wrong.
jquery.zip – Contains userDefineLang_jQuery.xml and jquery.xml
- Download the .zip file
- Unzip the file you just downloaded
- Open your Notepad++ installation directory, and find userDefineLang.xml
- Open that file for editing. If you don’t have any user defined languages saved already, you can simply rename userDefineLang_jQuery.xml to userDefineLang.xml and copy it into the Notepad++ installation directory. If you do have other custom languages, you need to merge the existing file and the new jQuery one. Simply copy the contents of userDefineLang_jQuery.xml and paste it into the bottom of userDefineLang.xml, and be sure to remove the extra </NotepadPlus><NotepadPlus> at the point where you pasted in the new content.
- Save and close, and open up the plugins/APIs directory.
- Copy jquery.xml into this folder, and start up Notepad++
- You should be able to select “jQuery” from the bottom of the Language menu. Great, you’re done! If you don’t see it, continue to the next step…
- If jQuery is not available in your language list, click on “View”, then “User-Defined Dialogue…”
- When the User-Defined Dialogue opens, click “Import” and select the userDefineLang.xml file.
- Close the User-Defined Dialogue and restart Notepad++. jQuery should now be an option in the Language menu.
