Re: [asciidoc-wg] AsciiDoc implementation for the Java/JVM ecosystem / project proposal

Hi all,

I think having an ANTLR [1] grammar for AsciiDoc would be a good start. In addition to providing the foundation for the AsciiDoc JVM implementation it could form the foundation of all kinds of tools and generators that deal with the AsciiDoc language. The ANTLR generator is not limited to Java, so such a grammar could also be used for C#, Python, JavaScript, Go, C++ and Swift targets.

I have experience in writing Eclipse based editors and tools using ANTLR grammars and found it very helpful being able to separate the parser and document model/generator in this way.

Please add Eclipse Mylyn Docs and myself to the list of interested parties.

Best regards,
Torkild Ulvøy Resheim
