Continuing the discussion from How to develop a plugin for a language that is not suppoerted?:

Some month have been passed since your answer. Is there anything new about this topic?


What is needed for a new JVM language?
(Mark Vieira) #2

The new Java language plugin is currently being improved as we speak. I believe the big missing bit is support for external dependencies. @daz can you chime in here on what the latest updates are?

If you want to add language support for the JVM then this should be pretty straightforward. For native it’s a bit more tricky, because there’s no extensibility yet in the Tool Chain infrastructure.

If you want to do this for a new domain (like ActionScript), then I can’t recommend building on the new model just yet.
