Atom Code Editor. Why is my code not in color?

I started using the Atom Code editor recently. During my last project, I installed a couple of tools to make my coding more interactive.

One of the features added color to my code which makes it easier to read.

However, I started a new project today and the code is all white on a dark background. How do I color my code?

I have attached two screenshots of the colored code and the non colored code just to illustrate what I mean but its pretty straightforward.


Atom might not be recognizing the syntax of your code immediately. Check the bottom right corner of the screen to make sure atom has the correct language/file extension selected. You can manually select this if atom doesn't do it automatically. You might also need to install some new packages if atom isn't recognizing your code.
