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 highlighting (template language only), syntax error markers, completion proposals for template language constructs and data-model members.

This plugin was developed at JBoss Tools by Red Hat Inc., but since then they have dropped it, and so what we link here is an "unofficial" maintenance fork made by an individual, not by JBoss (Red Hat Inc.), nor by Apache.
