Editor and IDE plugins
Syntax highlight definitions and other plugins for text editors and IDE-s. We encourage everybody to develop and send syntax highlight definitions or other plugins for his/her favorite editor or IDE!
|Editor or IDE||Features||Get it|
|Eclipse||Syntax highlight, syntax error marker, code completion for macro names and bean property names.||
This was developed at the JBoss Tools project for a long time, but as of JBoss Tools 4.5.3.AM2 they have removed it from the product. So it's likely that it will be maintained elsewhere in the future. Until that, you can install the latest version from here. Follow the instructions shown there ("Help" / "Install New Software..." etc.) While it's officially for Eclipse Oxygen, apparently it works fine even on the much older Eclipse Mars.
Note: If the plugin comes with an older
FreeMarker version than the one your application uses, it will
mark the usage of too fresh language features as errors. To fix
