colors, font size and editors

source code is just textual these days

there are some exceptions, like visual browsers or graph-like dataflow languages, but most source code is just text. which is really ok, because text is universal and easy to manipulate.

however we highlight it in different colors, use bold, why don’t we try something more radical with our editors?

those are random ideas, but I may try to implement prototypes of them as editor plugins, atom seems good for that(it’s easy to style with css)
