Make Sublime Text 2 treat script tag templates as HTML

Using templates to render HTML in Javascript is great; but unfortunately Sublime Text 2 treats templates embedded in script tags as Javascript (which means syntax highlighting and completions don’t work correctly). Luckily, this can easily be fixed by tweaking Sublime’s HTML language file.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go to Sublime’s Packages directory (or the use the Preferences -> Browse Packages… menu item).

  2. Open the HTML/HTML.tmLanguage file.

  3. Change line 286 from:

    <string>(?:^\s+)?(&lt;)((?i:script))\b(?![^&gt;]*/&gt;)</string>
    

    to:

    <string>(?:^\s+)?(&lt;)((?i:script))\b(?![^&gt;]*/&gt;)(?!.*type=["']text/template['"])</string>
    

Now any script tags with a type of text/template will be treated as HTML:

<script type="text/template">
    <h1>{{title}}</h1>
</script>
