Syntax Highlighting Theme

In my formative programming years I spent a lot of time writing Pascal code in the Borland Turbo Pascal IDE. It was one of the first programming languages that had a compiler, editor and debugger all included in one integrated tool.

Now I'm not writing code in Pascal but a variety of other languages using the Atom editor. Atom is written in JavaScript using the Google V8 JavaScript engine. This means that the entire editor is very customisable allowing users to create their own themes for both the user interface and the syntax highlighting.

You can also install the syntax theme directly in the Atom editor. Simply go to Preferences > Themes and search for "turbo pascal"
