I created this simple Sublime Text package to get a simple syntax recognition for files where the syntax isn’t obvious. By simple i mean only recognize comments. The most common use-case is dotfiles. I also added symbols/(sections) definitions. So by adding >> SECTION NAME after a comment declaration you can easily go to different sections in the file. The package currently contains four syntaxes: # | ssHash ! | ssExcla // | ssDslash ; | ssSemi Install the package with PackageControl .
