Syntax and Error Highlighting

Syntax Highlighting differentiate between sub-commands, options/flags, arguments, and variables. Error Highlighting automatically underlines any invalid commands with a dashed red underline.

What is Syntax Highlighting

Warp supports Syntax Highlighting in the Input Editor. It colors each part of a command to help differentiate between sub-commands, options/flags, arguments, and variables.

How to access Syntax Highlighting

When Syntax Highlighting is enabled, Warp's Input Editor automatically recognizes each part of the command as you type it into the Input Editor, and syntactically highlight them.

How to enable/disable Syntax Highlighting

Syntax highlighting is enabled by default, to toggle it:

  • Through the Command Palette, search for the "Syntax Highlighting" option and click it (or press enter) to enable/disable.

  • Through Settings > Features > Editor , toggle "Syntax highlighting for commands"

What is Error Underlining

Warp highlights errors in commands that are typed within the Input Editor e.g. if the binary for the command you've typed does not exist.

Newly installed apps or newly created aliases will trigger error underlining until you open a new Warp session (new window, tab, or pane).
