Yeah. Maybe I should replace regex ' *:=' rather than just ':='. That's easy enough with the plugin

I like your solution and think it looks great, though perhaps you forgot the space behind it? I'm not a huge fan of how modern Python is putting colons everywhere so this helps a tiny bit.
I don't hate how it looks, but I really, really don't get how it's

Probably would need several, as CB mentioned below. Still, debatable.
I mean, as shown in this example and a previous one I posted a screenshot of, I think it's cute and geeky to use a few math symbols in

Guessing there were a few rare curmudgeons who didn't think we needed lowercase letters before ascii and still a few who don't want syntax highlighting either. I realize we're hitting the land of diminishing returns on text, but once features are gained I know I don't want to go back.
For example, I use many useful Unicode symbols in my text strings and console output. Billions of folks are using non-latin alphabets right now because Python3 makes it easy. All modern systems can handle them, why not? And input is not an significant issue, though it depends on the block. _______________________________________________ Python-ideas mailing list -- firstname.lastname@example.org To unsubscribe send an email to email@example.com https://mail.python.org/mailman3/lists/python-ideas.python.org/ Message archived at https://firstname.lastname@example.org/message/4WNTP4...
