A new QBASIC IDE, (21st century one)?

I'm looking for a modern IDE/Compiler that supports QBASIC programs and has the same or almost similar syntax as of QBASIC. I want to stay as close to Qbasic as possible in terms of syntax, style, and flow. No windowed-based / visual-style languages like Visual Basic. It just needs to have text-based or at least focus on text-based programming. I'm not looking for opinions on alternatives, like Python or Ruby. My goal is to find an updated form of Qbasic, or something modern that's very similar to QBasic. I know QBASIC can work natively (no full screen) and via DOSBOX in newer windows. But I want something that compiles for modern OSes and that has some sort of syntax highlighting in it. Thank You
