Re: [code] [textadept] snippet to set some lexer

Hi Alexander,

in your ~/.textadept/init.lua file you could create a snippet like the

snippets['perl'] = "#!/bin/perl%<buffer:set_lexer('perl')>"

The part in %< > is Lua code and sets the lexer to perl.

It's a global snippet so you would create a new buffer, type perl, hit
tab to expand the snippet (and switch the lexer to Perl).

Hope this works for you,
