Re: [eclipse-dev] where to get started writing a language parser for SWIG

No thanks. I don't do javascript, nor should anyone else.

I don't have any intention for doing anything differently to make things easier for microsoft; I'm a bit oldschool, they are and always have been the evil empire. I don't trust anything with pictures of random people smiling and saying marketing slogans about something.

Xtext is surely the way to go; thank y'all for the suggestions I will look into that webcast as well and maybe get around to doing it if I get around to it

best ,

Hi Stephen,

If you want to implement an editor for SWIG in Eclipse with content
assist, outline etc, the easiest and best way is to use a language
server implementation and integrate it via  LSPE into Eclipse. This
way you can use the same language server for other tools like VSCode.

Best regards, Lars

Hi Manoj, yes looks right.. it doesnt necessarily have to do with java support though, SWIG supports many languages and one could envision using it to generate C or python or whatever.. does that still fall under JDT?

Hi Stephen,

To understand the requirement, checking whether you want to convert the SWIG files into a DOM AST of JDT?

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [eclipse-dev] where to get started writing a language parser for SWIG

Hypothetically, what is the proper way to create a mode (im not sure of the proper jargon) to parse SWIG interface files

for syntax hilighting, type hierarchy, etc.

Is there some some sort of minimal project I can checkout that does this sorta thing?

Thanks in advance
