I am trying to get my head around plugin development in general and custom language plugin in particular.
I am looking here: http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/IDEADEV/Developing+Custom+Language+Plugins+for+IntelliJ+IDEA
I also would like to see a JavaDoc or similar API documentation for the relevant APIs. Can someone point me to this, I can't seem to find it.
And finally, what I really want to do is start with implementing basic syntax highlighting and leave the more advanced features for later. If there are any tips for a getting a minimal start like that they would be greatly appreciated.
