I don't have it installed and when I Googled I couldn't find what appeared to be a definitive pre-built image. So the first question is: where did you get your image from?

Secondly, what exactly do you mean by "configure the editor to work with ConTeXt files"? Simply open them? Or understand the syntax to allow syntax highlighting? Or something else?

To open them you need to pick an extension - I use .tex - then option-click a .tex file -> choose 'other' -> find Scite in the list of apps -> tick "Always open with" -> click Open and it should then associate Scite with .tex files.
