If you find the syntax highlighting functionality in the nano text editor lacking, you will appreciate a collection of .nanorc files in the nanorc GitHub repository.

Here, you'll find a selection of definition files for a broad range of programming languages: from Python and HTML, to Lua and Markdown. To add all this goodness to nano, clone the GitHub repository using the git clone https://github.com/nanorc/nanorc.git command, and then install the files by running the make install command. That's all there is to it.
