Processing Syntax Coloring in TextWrangler

Processing is based on Java. TextWrangler supports syntax highlighting for Java code, but it doesn’t automatically recognize that Processing uses Java syntax. So, head over to the Languages pane of TextWrangler’s preferences and click Add next to the Suffix Mappings list. Enter .pde as the Extension and select Java as the language that should be associated with .pde files.

Now if you open a Processing source code file in TextWrangler, it will be displayed with basic syntax highlighting.
