I created a User Defined Language File for Notepad++ to bring the ns.conf into a colored and easy to read format
Feel free to share and post it in your blogs.
I dont claim any copyright and everybody is free to use and modify it himself.
I tried to cover mostly all of the commands and parameters from the product documentation and checked it with some config´s from big deployments. Hope it covers most of your ns.config´s too.
Feel free to update and share if not
All you need to do is following to install the language file (once):
(From Menue Bar) -> Language -> Define your language.. -> Import -> Select the downloaded file
Close Notepad++ and re-open it.
Next time you open a netscaler config in notepad++:
(From Menue Bar) -> Language -> Citrix Netscaler (on the very bottom)
- has to be selected manually, no autodetection, stays selected in a tab until its closed -
Looks like this:
just that you dont get confused by the color concept:
All the -Parameters are normally light brown
Any -Parameter that refer to settings like Certificate bindings, IP Modes, SSL Settings, Priorities etc. are kept green
Some for me important like -rule or -action as well as ns_true and ns_false are kept in red
The rest should be self explaining
*UPDATED* v.1.3.2 Thanks to:
