[NTG-context] Scite and Mac OS

Regarding the first question, Scite comes from the App Store. I have downloaded and installed it. When I open Scite, I can open .tex files without problem, but when I try to compile, I get an error. On the other hand, there is no syntax highlighting nor do they appear in the taskbar> options, the preferences to configure ConTeXt.properties, etc.
 Thank you.

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.
