Nested curly brackets with different color highlightning?

I evaluate a switch from another component library to syncfusion and do tests with the EditControl which is a main component in my actual software.

I need color highlightning for nested curly brackets for at least 6 levels, to visualize the so called "spintax" which is very simple and consists of only 3 elements "{", "|" and "}". Some examples:

And so forth. Each bracket level should have it's own color. The color of the text itself (elementX) could be normal (black) or the same color as the corresponding level color of the brackets.

I play around with the configuration file at the moment but I don't get the right start for now. Any help is appreciated :-)

Best regards,
