The language-cmake package had been the most used CMake syntax highlighter for Atom. However, the package was discontinued in May 2019, approximately corresponding to CMake 3.14.

My ‘language-cmake-2’ fork

I have forked the project and updated it to the current CMake version (3.19.2). I plan to keep it up-to-date in the future.

How to install the new package?

a) By hand

The language-cmake-2 is a direct fork of the original package. To install it, first uninstall the old one and then install the new one:

apm uninstall --hard language-cmake
apm install language-cmake-2

b) Using the script

You can also install the new package using the packed script. Just execute it:


or, if you want to link the current directory into Atom (like with apm install --link), run:

./install --link
