BBEdit Language Module Library

Welcome! Please peruse and enjoy, but before you start, here are some important reminders:

The language modules listed here are just the ones we know about. The BBEdit Extras wiki is a great place to look for language modules and more. (This is a community-maintained resource, and is not an official publication of Bare Bones Software.)

Please note that language modules developed by third parties may not be compatible with all versions of BBEdit. If you find that a language module is not compatible with your version of BBEdit, please contact the language module’s developer for assistance.


To install a language module, copy the module file into the “Language Modules” subfolder of BBEdit’s application support folder (below), and then quit and relaunch BBEdit.
/Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/BBEdit/Language Modules/

(Note: if your BBEdit application support folder is stored in Dropbox, please instead copy the language module into: ~/Dropbox/Application Support/BBEdit/Language Modules/.)
