Gradle Build Script Editor


(Ivan RF) #1

I’m using Buildship plugin and I would like to know if the “Gradle Build Script Editor” which opens the .gradle files is going to have at least this functions in the near future:

  • Syntax Highlighting
  • Line information (at the bottom of eclipse, like text or any other editor)

Of course, there are other features that it should include (Syntax Validation, Content Assist, etc.) but I think that right now Syntax Highlighting and line info is a must.

I’m trying the Groovy (from editor rather (I know is dead, so not sure yet…)
