I've announced this on boost-build but
I think folks here may find it useful as well.

Subject: Syntax highlighting for Boost.Jam language in Visual Studio Code
(A pet project warning!)
I've published an extension for VSCode with a brave
attempt to color-hightlight syntax of Jam language:
This is based on a very basic TextMate language grammar
definitions, often naive, and, by no means, it is complete or bug-free
coverage of the Jam. Even so, I think it quite helps to de-annoy
or even enjoy process of writing Jam scrips :-)
I'm no expert of writing TextMate language grammars
- this is my first ever attempt - so chances are I may be incapable
of fixing bugs or improving it with advanced features.
Especially, that "the process of writing a TextMate language
grammar remains poorly documented"
