c language plugin

I try to adapt a C language plugin from the Javascript plugin by
intellij and got first results for the structure viewer.

(Sometimes I need editing more or less complex C files for some native
problems, so my target is not to have a full C IDE within idea.)

Before I go into details, I want to ask if there are special copyright
issues for the "Javascript" plugin if I want to make this plugin open
source and publish it.

Secondly I want to as intellij if you use the same parser API for the
java editor.

Thanks
Thomas

PS: What is the right group for such discussions plugins or openapi?

Awesome.

The source is released under Apache license.

I believe they use the same API for parts, but there is lots of proprietary
magic added onto it providing features that aren't currently accessible to
plugin developers.

The OpenAPI forum is normally where people talk about plugin development.
