I can recommend a framework which gives you syntax coloring, code
navigation, code folding, code completion for you. Have a look at
You just have to create a metamodel using Ecore and declare a syntax for
you language. After that you generate the needed code and then can
extend the abstract interpreter for imlementing your own. Or you can
just write a compiler. The clue is that you have an underlying model
(i.e. an abstract syntax tree) which you can traverse and evaluate as
you need. And if you want to build up a really little IDE I recommend
another framework. With the following link you can easy activate
refactorings for your language of choice:
The only thing which is left now is the debugger ;)
