I am trying to develop an Eclipse-based editor for a 2d game engine(www.ksatechnologyhq.com:1357). This includes a text editor for its scripting language. I want to be able to index the script files to search through them and display functions from other files. Also, I want someone to join me in making the editor.

Hello? Anyone here? Or am I just talking to myself? If this post is too vague or doesn't meet some strange condition, just say so!

Hello,

I can not answer your question because I am a novice too.
But, I have a question for you: how did you start to develop the editor? Did you use the "Editor template" from "New plugin development"?

Thanks
Marco

I wouldn't recommend it if you are trying to make an editor that is not for XML files. Instead, create a plugin with no template, open plugin.xml, and on the Extensions tab, click Add..., find the org.eclipse.ui.editors extension point and click Finish. Next, fill out the form that appears to the right, like this.index.php/fa/2891/0/
Check out the examples and Platform Plug-in Developer Guide to see how features are implemented. But seriously, I want some help over here!

Yes, the goal is to develop an editor for XML files.
But I saw the the editor provided by template has not got a lot of functions like:

-- outline
-- tag folding

and others.
