JSX not formating correctly in Sublime Text

Hi I am using Sublime Text to code. For some reason when i type in JSX code the formatting i.e. the colour coding is all wrong. If i name the file with an extension .JSX it works fine.

How do i fix it so my jsx code displays correctly while keeping the extension as .js

Thanks in advance

I’m not sure about sublime but VS Code is the best for react in my opinion. There are a lot of extensions in it that help with formatting and linting. code.visualstudio.com
