TextWrangler/BBedit keywords files for VW 2018

Recommended Posts

As I promised a while ago, here are the TextWrangler/BBEdit Vectorscript Keywords files for VW 2018.


This is a zip file containing two vectorscript files:

  • VectorScript Keywords_VW2018.px
  • VectorScript Keywords_VW2018.vss



  • expand the zip file
  • place both resulting files in the "Custom Keywords" folders:
  •      /Users/[userName]/Library/Application Support/TextWrangler/Custom Keywords
  •      /Users/[userName]/Library/Application Support/BBEdit/Custom Keywords
  • restart TextWrangler or BBEdit

From now on any file whose suffix is .px or .vss will load those keywords for highlighting. If you need more informations please consult the Manual on Textwrangler or BBEdit.

Ciao Sam,


I added it now,

VectorScript 2302-new.plist.zip


but it is simpler to use the built-in vectorscript code adding the keywords. That resolves pretty well everything while my old plist file was rather slow, due to -I believe- some inefficiency in the grep for indenting the routines. In the attached file you'll see that the routines don't indent well in the menu.


If you set now TW or BBE on "Vectorscript" or "automatic" it chooses the proper keyword file depending on the suffix, .px or .vss, and it behaves as the plist files!

Look at the screenshots below and tell me if it works by you:

I add here the instructions of TW 5.5, I found this change genially simple:

Reuploaded plist file: the internal version was still the old one!

Hello, for those who downloaded the plist file already, I uploaded now a new version: I forgot to change the internal version ID and it didn't display well.
