Preface: I created a minimal example for this problem
I want to adjust the "language identifiers" that are used to recognize my language in fenced code blocks when writing markdown with the JB Markdown Plugin
The Markdown plugin provides an EP for this called CodeFenceLanguageProvider.
Therefore, I added the MD plugin to my gradle build file
version = "LATEST-EAP-SNAPSHOT"
downloadSources = true
pluginName = "Wolfram-Language"
sameSinceUntilBuild = false
updateSinceUntilBuild = true
I added an optional dependency in my plugin.xml
<depends optional="true" config-file="withMarkdown.xml">org.intellij.plugins.markdown</depends>
and filled the config-file with what I believe is useful content
Everything compiles but I cannot get it to work. Additionally, IDEA always highlights the fenceLanguageProvider as red and I don't get any completion inside the extensions tags. The definition of the EP inside the MD plugin.xml is
I must be doing something basically wrong because even when I set a breakpoint in the markdown code at e.g. org.intellij.plugins.markdown.injection.LanguageGuesser#guessLanguage I don't get a hit when debugging.
The IntelliJ SDK Docs are pretty detailed about this and still, I'm unable to get it going. I "grep"-ed through the whole community sources but it seems no one used this EP. Can someone give me a pointer in the right direction?
