    ECL syntax highlighting may seem like a small feature to shine a spotlight on but for ECL programmers, it has a huge impact on the speed and efficiency with which they can create and review ECL code. In this blog, Dan Abittan walks us through the recent success in getting this feature supported on GitLab, so that all ECL users can take advantage of it.
