Currently if I use nano to edit a file with a .py extension nano will recognize it as a Python file and will color the syntax, but for Python 2. Is there anyway for nano to color syntax to Python3 instead as that's what I know how to use?

  • How do you expect the color to be different? All nano does is go by the file ending and apply the rules it has for that file ending. – Steve Robillard Nov 16 '19 at 22:41
  • I suppose if you know what you are doing you could edit /usr/share/nano/python.nanorc – joan Nov 16 '19 at 23:08
