Alex asked me to post this here:

"Mylyn Intent looks interesting http://wiki.eclipse.org/Intent wonder if it could be integrated with asciidoc instead of html..."


Now with asciidoctor.org having java hooks for asciidoc this might be doable ?

Hi Max,

first of all thanks for asking :)

There are 2 ways of integrating Asciidoc inside Intent:
[1] Use asciidoc as an export format for the Intent document.
[2] Directly use the asciidoc inside Intent editor to write the
documentation

[1] is pretty straightfoward: as the Intent document is stored as a
model, it is easy to define Acceleo generators for exporting the
documentation. The default export format is HTML Bootstrap (see
https://github.com/eclipse/mylyn.docs.intent.main/tree/master/plugins/org.eclipse.mylyn.docs.intent.exporter
for getting the source of the acceleo generator), but we are also
working on a LaTeX export (
https://github.com/eclipse/mylyn.docs.intent.main/tree/master/plugins/org.eclipse.mylyn.docs.intent.markup).

For someone familiar with the Asiidoc syntax, it can be done quite quickly.

[2] is more tricky. Although Intent clearly aims at being extensible in
regards to the syntax it is using inside the Intent editor, there are
many points (syntax highlighting & completion for example) that are not
yet extensible. So I would say that it will be possible in the future,
but that it would be hard to do with the current 0.8 API.

I Hope I've answered you question, please do not hesitate to spam me if
you have feedback or other feature requests !
Regards,
Alex

As asciidoc is getting seriously trendy, I opened this bug to track the idea: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=418563

Thanks Michael, will follow this bug closelly. As soon as Wikitext is
compatible with Asciidoc, so will Intent (well at least for [1] in my
previous message).
