I started working with a group that has written their own XSLT |
extensions (both functions and elements). I considered extending a text
editor and slapping together a partition scanner to provide content
assist and syntax highlighting. But then we would miss out on all the
great things the XSL editor does now.
So I downloaded the source for the XSL UI and took a look at the editors
and content assist processing. As I might have suspected, the classes
depend on lots of other WST components. I don't mind digging into to it
a bit. But before I do, I wondered how feasible it would be to extend
the XSL editor's content assist.
I also wondered whether the XSL tooling will soon support templates
contexts other than New XSL. While I find this one very useful, I'd
also like to see the Tag context like the XML editor has. Then I could
define many of my favorite extensions as templates without having to
write a plug-in.
