# Syntax highlighting for HLSL and ShaderLab files on GitHub.com

## Making the world prettier, one GitHub.com page at a time

I don’t know about you, but one of the things I’ve always liked about GitHub is how nice it looks when you’re browsing code files.

That is, unless you’re looking at HLSL or Unity ShaderLab shaders, in which case you’re stuck with plain, non-syntax-highlighted, text. (Or in the case of ShaderLab, GitHub pretended they were GLSL files, resulting in missing highlighting for all the ShaderLab-specific parts, and poor highlighting for CGPROGRAM blocks because Cg has more in common with HLSL than GLSL.)
