Aptana3: Smarty Highlighting

Aptana 3 doesn’t have full highlighting support or association, but you can set it up to at least do HTML highlighting.

You can associate .tpl files from within explorer by right clicking a .tpl file and going to properties and “open with” and selecting/browsing to Aptana.

To get highlighting going in Aptana, you need to go to “Window” -> “Preferences” -> “General” -> “Content Types” and select “Text” in the right text pane, browse down to “HTML” and click the “Add” button and add “*.tpl” to the extensions list.

Now when you click a .tpl file it’ll open in Aptana and have atleast HTML highlighting!
