reStructured Text support and adding syntax highlighters?

Am I missing something or doesn't pyCharm have any support for reStructured Text (rst)?

I tried opening rst files in pyCharm and the best thing I could find was a plugin for markdown, which is similar to a tiny subset of rst but insufficient for actual use when dealing with rst files.

If there is no support, are there any plans to add this soon? I am considering moving from a popular multi-language competitor to pyCharm and phpStorm, but text highlighting for the most common formats is an absolute must.

Is there any way to add syntax highlighting for other languages (e.g. jinja2, which is mostly identical to Django templates, except where it isn't) to pyCharm and its siblings myself?

Hello Alan,

Both reStructuredText and Jinja templates are planned to be supported in

future versions of PyCharm. reStructuredText will probably come first. :-)

Is there any target for rst support or a tutorial for adding syntax highlighting for additional formats?

PyCharm's feature set has me convinced into switching over from one of its competitors, but this would be pretty awesome.

Hello Alan,

Adding syntax highlighting for something like reStructuredText is possible

would require writing a plugin in Java. As for our own plans, it's currently

on the roadmap for PyCharm 1.5.

Is there any target for rst support or a tutorial for adding syntax

highlighting for additional formats?

its competitors, but this would be pretty awesome.

Hello Ivan,

and Jinja2 support will it make into 1.5?

Right now it doesn't seem to be the case. Our primary focus for 1.5 is on

documentation support (reStructuredText and Epydoc, external documentation

etc.) and improving our support for Django.
