I'm using TeXstudio 2.11 on windows 8.1 and have problems with a syntax highlighting when I use math symbols in a new environment:

My Code:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{verbatim}
\usepackage{minted}

\newenvironment{languagebat}{\VerbatimEnvironment\minted[
    frame=single, 
    xleftmargin=0mm, 
    numbersep=5pt, 
    autogobble, 
    breaklines,  
    breakanywhere, 
    breaklines, 
    framesep=2mm, 
    rulecolor=black!30, 
    bgcolor=black!3, 
    linenos=false, 
    startinline, 
    tabsize=4
    ]{bat}}{\endminted}

\begin{document}

    \begin{languagebat}
        $ git rm --cached giant_file
    \end{languagebat}

\end{document}

Result in the editor:

enter image description here

I think the languagebat environment extends from verbatim environment correctly and that should be working fine.

The problem seems to be the $ sign in the languagebat environment, and TeXstudio believes that I have entered some math code that I have not yet terminated with an ending $ sign. Is there a way to tell TeXstudio to ignore syntax highlighting within a particular environment?

Caveat emptor: I'm not a TXS user

Emacs, the editor you are referring to in the other answer, can parse .tex files and add newly defined commands/environments to its completion list on fly. I don't think that TXS has this feature, hence you have to write your own .cwl file. The way I get it you have to put your minted related (and other?) code in a .sty file, say mydefs.sty, e.g.

\ProvidesPackage{mydefs}[2016/11/13 Package mydefs]
\RequirePackage{minted}
\newenvironment{languagebat}{\VerbatimEnvironment\minted[
    frame=single, 
    % ...
    ]{bat}}{\endminted}

and use it with \usepackage{mydefs} in your preamble (why not using \newminted BTW?)

Next, you write a mydefs.cwl file like:

\begin{languagebat}#V
\end{languagebat}

put it into a directory described here. You probably have to restart TXS and load your file in order to get it work.

Maybe some TXS expert can confirm this.
