You can download both the syntax highlighters below, install them in Notepad++. Then your Dockerfiles will be highlighted nicely like the ones on the docker hub, and your EnergyPlus IDFs will be a little more readable than they usually are in a text editor. The only caveat is you’ll need tell Notepad++ your file is a Dockerfile since they don’t have an extension to help identify them. That’s easily done using
Language > Dockerfile.
