Support for editing AutoHotkey .ahk files

Is anyone aware of a way to get syntax highlighting, and ideally full support with completion etc, for AutoHotkey's .ahk script files in IntelliJ IDEA. I'm loving IDEA as an editor, and would love to be able to use it effectively for AutoHotkey scripts.

I'm currently using UltraEdit, and it's not bad, but it's nowhere near as sophisticated as IDEA.

I don't see an official plugin for this. Are there places that might have something unofficial?

As far as I know no such plugin exists. You can configure some simple syntax highlighting using the custom file types feature (Settings | File Types).

Thanks Dmitry, that's what I thought. I wish I had time to get fully into writing a "language" plugin, but that's not a high enough priority right now relative to the work it'd take. In general I'm headed towards using IDEa for more and more things, but this one will have to wait.

Thanks again,

The autohotkey plugin for IntelliJ is available now on the Plugin Marketplace. It's being developed and should have more features as time goes on.
