Hi all,

In xtext, can we make our language file extension case insensitive ?

For E.g. If I create a text file with "SomeName.TXT", it still works the same as "SomeName.txt".
Same holds good for many other file types.

But consider a xtext language with ".dmodel" as file extension.

If I create a file with name "MyFile.Dmodel" then generators are not getting called.

But syntax colouring, validations and other stuffs work.


This I did not like. Either everything should work or nothing should work.

I felt if we can make it case insensitive then that would be the good option.

Any suggestions here...?

Thanks for any help Smile

Hi,

(1) allow all file extension (adapt property (list all possibilities) in workflow, regenerate, merge plugin_xml gen)
(2) file an enhancement request.


Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?

Hi Christian,

Thanks for the reply.

For now I will go ahead with your first proposal and I will file an enhancement too.
