I am looking at developing a custom Language Plugin and have a few questions:
1. If developed in IntelliJ - will it work with PHPStorm?
2. The syntax of the language I am targeting is horrible, is there an opensource language plugin that would get me started as I am a noob java programmer. The language I am targeting is a old language called i-HTML. The syntax is very similar to HTML/XML as exampled below:
<iLOOP Alias="a" STEP="1" Initial="1" Final="4">
<iIF EXPR=":a = 3" Alias="crazy1">
<iCASE Alias="test" Value="3">
<b>:a</b> - (:test)<br />
<iREM --- this is a comment --->
yup this is a comment block
Not equal to 3<br />
The reason we want to create the plugin is that we have been using PHPStorm for all of our new development, but we have all of these old projects which use i-HTML. It would be nice to make use of the power of the IDE on the older stuff as well.
If you are curious, you can see more at www.ihtml.com. Just to clarify, I am no longer a fan of iHTML, but have no choice for the next few years of having to put up with it.
3. Is there anyone out there that would like to offer to write the plugin for me LOL, for a price of course?
