The nice folks on the Kivy ML have provided a kv language highlighting for Pycharm 🙂

For easy retrieval I just post the original announcement together with the settings file:

For anyone using PyCharm, please find attached a file type extension that give you full syntax highlighting for KV files. Courtesy of Xuton…;-)
To install:
On Pycharm’s main menu, click File-> Import settings

    Select this file, then it will come with a dialog with filetypes ticked. Just click ok or whatever and then its there.

You can get the file here:
