             Summary: Editor should recognize the filetype via unix comment, from the first
                 Key: NETBEANS-27
             Project: NetBeans
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: editor - Formatting & Indentation, editor - Parsing & Indexing
    Affects Versions: 8.2
            Reporter: Christian Lenz

I created a HTML5/JS Application with NodeJS, I activated express to use it. After next, the
express.cmd created a project template. Inside the bin folder, there is a file called www.
Here is a little example of the code:

#!/usr/bin/env node

 * Module dependencies.

var app = require('../app');
var debug = require('debug')('jade:server');
var http = require('http');

 * Get port from environment and store in Express.

var port = normalizePort(process.env.PORT || '3000');
app.set('port', port);

 * Create HTTP server.

NetBeans doesn't know that this is JS code, and it will not treat it as a JS file. So the
editor should recognize the type from the comment from the first line, which comes from unix
systems(?). I tried the same source in WebStorm and Visual Studio Code and it works very well
as expected.

I don't want to set the mimetype for the www file to js, because it will affect every file,
without having an extension, which is not good. I tried it and any file, which has no extension
is now a JS file in my IDE.

So please let the editor set the mimetype from this comment, to the supported mimetype from
