Hi,

We are using a custom javascript based framework. Till now you can say we are coding in simple notepad. We are using eclipse but with proper intellensence feature it same like notepad where everything has to typed by your own.

Now I have given the task to write intellsense plugin for eclipse. But I have no idea how to start it. Which tool to use. Kindly guide me in writing the intellesense feature. Tell me a good tool for writing it and some nice tutorial on language intellesence writing...

Regards
Zeeshan Safder

Hi,

what do you mean with intellensence? is that what is called Content Assist or Completion Proposals in Xtext?

Hi

if you'd have a statically typed language / dsl this would work out of the box - i doubt that it is possible to give proper content assist in a dirty language like javascript.

With a bit of analysis and applied Duck Typing it should be possible to
at least support Quack Fixes [sic].
