color your nano

nano editor is no syntax highlight for any language by default. It is only black and white as in the picture below.

To enable syntax highlight, you can uncomment the line [# include "/usr/share/nano/ruby.nanorc"]in /etc/nanorc[for global effect]. Or if you just want this effect to your user only. create ~/.nanorc and include default[sample] language specific config file from /usr/share/nano. Here is my java syntax highlight .nanorc file

include "/usr/share/nano/java.nanorc"
