Editor integrations

I've begun adding syntax highlighting

But... wow this is hard stuff.

  "match": "\\b([A-Za-z][A-Za-z0-9\\$_]*)\\s*(<-)",
  "captures": {
    "0": {
      "name": "variable.basic2020"
    "1": {
      "name": "keyword.operator.assignment.basic2020"

I've been using Microsoft's JavaScript.tmLanguage as inspiration and it is hard to comprehend that this is the best way to do this.

A new BASIC programming language
I, like many other programmers, first learned to write computer code with some variation of BASIC. To be precise - I wrote my first programs in TI-Basic during algebra class and then graduated onto Visual Basic my freshman year of high school. I found QBASIC somewhere in the midst of that before moving onto Python. It's weird to me that a lot people learn what I believe to be much harder programming languages. JavaScript, while ubiquitous, has at least 4 ways to make a new function and as many ways to define a new variable. Bring in pattern-matching, and suddenly it's tough to keep track of all the braces. So, I'd like to bring BASIC back (though, to be fair, it never actually left). https://github.com/jdan/basic2020 FUNCTION factorial(N) IF N = 1 RETURN 1 ELSE RETURN N * factorial (N - 1) END END PRINT(FACTORIAL(20)) I want a language with incredibly Simple syntax and the ability to quickly and natively create Command-line programs, Drawing programs and Web programs. Later on, I want to allow others to make different types of program templates (for things outside of command-line and web that I haven't thought about!) and Editor integrations.
