CMake Editor Modes

There are CMake syntax highlighting and indentation supports for several editors:

; Add cmake listfile names to the mode list.
(setq auto-mode-alist
	   '(("CMakeLists\\.txt\\'" . cmake-mode))
	   '(("\\.cmake\\'" . cmake-mode))

(autoload 'cmake-mode "~/CMake/Docs/cmake-mode.el" t)
  • VIM syntax highlighting and indentation mode. To enable indentation, copy indentation file to your .vim/indent directory, syntax highlighting file to your .vim/syntax directory and add the following to your .vimrc:
:autocmd BufRead,BufNewFile *.cmake,CMakeLists.txt,*.cmake.in runtime! indent/cmake.vim 
:autocmd BufRead,BufNewFile *.cmake,CMakeLists.txt,*.cmake.in setf cmake
:autocmd BufRead,BufNewFile *.ctest,*.ctest.in setf cmake
  • Eclipse CMake Editor. Plug-in for the Eclipse IDE providing syntax coloring and content assist for editing CMakeLists.txt and any file ending in a .cmake extension. Integrates the CMake command reference documentation into the Eclipse Help system.
  • Kate, KWrite, KDevelop and all other KDE applications, which use the kate text-editing component support cmake syntax highlighting. Currently you have to open the settings dialog and choose download (Settings -> Configure Kate -> Editor -> Highlighting -> Download) and there select CMake in the listbox. Then the cmake syntax highlighting definition file for kate will be downloaded and installed. From KDE 3.4 and later cmake syntax highlighting will come with standard KDE.
  • Enscript syntax highlighting rules. To enable it:
    1. copy cmake.st in the hl/ directory.
    2. add the following in the namerules section of the hl/enscript.st file:
  /CMakeLists\.txt/               cmake;
  /\.cmake.*$/                    cmake;
  /\.ctest.*$/                    cmake;
  • SciTE version 1.73 has CMake support. To enable the feature edit SciTEGlobal.Properties and remove the comment before cmake lines.
  • TextMate is a wonderful text editor for OS X. CMake Bundle. This plugin adds syntax highlighting for Cmake files.

Creating New Editor Mode

The best way to start is to check the logic in existing ones. Make sure to enable indentation for files that match the following file names:

  • CMakeLists.txt
  • *.cmake
  • *.cmake.in
  • *.ctest
  • *.ctest.in
