Solution Description

LiClipseText is an editor which enables Eclipse to be used as a general-purpose text editor, providing support for multiple languages out of the box.

It's the Open Source (EPL-based) counterpart of LiClipse.

It comes with goodies such as:

  • Syntax Highlighting (LiClipse, TextMate or SublimeText based).
  • Code completion.
  • Outline view and Quick Outline.
  • Text-based mark occurrences.
  • LiClipse Languages view:
    • Enables exploring installed languages.
  • LiClipse Partitions view:
    • Enables inspecting the partitioning of the editor.
    • Useful to debug how LiClipseText is parsing a language.
  • Use LiClipseText as a base for other editors:
    • Languages may be created and experimented with on-the-fly, without restarting Eclipse.

 

The recommended way of using LiClipseText is bundled in LiClipse.

LiClipse bundles LiClipseText in an easy to use package with extended features (also, by licensing LiClipse you directly support the development of LiClipseText).

  • C/C++
  • CSS
  • CoffeScript
  • CMake
  • Dart
  • Django Templates
  • Go

This is one piece of a rougue plugin that you do not want in your eclipse. On installation it replaces _all_ file associations and registers itself as default editor for all languages - C++/Python/Java/anything. And it is freaking buggy, e.g. outline does not work at all in C++.

CMake:
1) The "set" is not highlighted after comment like:
# comment
set(VAR "MY VAR")

2) The "set" is highlighted with error.
Any occurrence of "set" (except after '#' comment) is highlighted without highlighting of symbol 's'.

Bash:
1) The "export" is not highlighted after comment like:
# comment
export VAR=MY_VAR

Awesome plugin. Especially helpful when only the syntax highlighting is needed (in some cases, without the need to install full-fledged plugins that come with other tools like compiler chains).

It would be good to see support for some other languages (like Scala sbt, for which there are already emacs and vim syntax files). Not sure how hard is for the community to create and contribute new language files.
