Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Has anyone got (or can point in the direction of) a nanorc file that contains syntax highlighting for C# and/or ASP.Net?

There is an emacs one, but that wasn't your question ;-) –  Chris Huang-Leaver Aug 15 '10 at 7:24

Are you kidding right? Why would you use that editor for C# programming. Try [MonoDevelop][1], if you're serious about learning C# in Linux, it's WAY BETTER, in my humble opinion. [1]: monodevelop.com –  dZkF9RWJT6wN8ux Aug 18 '10 at 21:45
    
Oh I have MonoDevelop set up too, but sometimes I need to work over a console-only SSH session –  Rob Cowell Aug 19 '10 at 14:17
    
Ugh... this really makes me hope my proposal gets some traction because I kinda feel that this has no business here.... this is a site about unix not development environments. –  xenoterracide Aug 25 '10 at 14:43

Using the Java example from http://wiki.linuxhelp.net/index.php/Nano_Syntax_Highlighting, you can try to add something like the following into your ~/.nanorc:

syntax "C# source" "\.cs$"
color green "\<(bool|byte|sbyte|char|decimal|double|float|int|uint|long|ulong|new|object|short|ushort|string|base|this|void)\>"
color red "\<(as|break|case|catch|checked|continue|default|do|else|finally|fixed|for|foreach|goto|if|is|lock|return|switch|throw|try|unchecked|while)\>"
color cyan "\<(abstract|class|const|delegate|enum|event|explicit|extern|implicit|in|internal|interface|namespace|operator|out|override|params|private|protected|public|readonly|ref|sealed|sizeof|static|struct|typeof|using|virtual|volatile)\>"
color red ""[^\"]*""
color yellow "\<(true|false|null)\>"
color blue "//.*"
color blue start="/\*" end="\*/"
color brightblue start="/\*\*" end="\*/"
color brightgreen,green " +$"

True, but not all Unix/Linux users are Ubuntu users. The Ubuntu SE site was in public beta first too... –  Rob Cowell Aug 19 '10 at 14:16
