Default global syntax.filemap sets default filetypes to JavaScript for JSON configurations
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Minor detail.

This array seems to set default file types for the syntax highlighter for special Phabricator/Arcanist configurations. js is the name for JavaScript, it seems. It should be set to json, as far as I understand.

To fix this:

  • Change these to json.

To test:

  • Create a new Paste called .arcconfig without an explicit highlighting language (e.g., autodetect).
  • Verify that the content is highlighted as JSON, not Javascript.
    • I have no idea what the difference is or what to look for, perhaps @cinek has an example of a file that gets highlighted differently.
    • Otherwise, create test.js an test.json and fiddle with them until they highlight differently.
    • Or you could var_dump() the language in use and just inspect it, but it's probably tricky to get at.
