Christian Lenz commented on NETBEANS-7:
---------------------------------------

That would be a great enhancement.

> Provide basic editor features (syntax highlighting, braces matching, 
> completion, etc) for more file types

> We could provide basic editor features (syntax highlighting, braces matching, 
> completion, etc) for more languages based on the existing corpus of 
> definitions from other editors/IDEs. See
> * 
> http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php?title=User_Defined_Language_Files
> * http://docs.sublimetext.info/en/latest/extensibility/syntaxdefs.html
> * https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/extensionAPI/language-support
> * http://www.ultraedit.com/downloads/extras/wordfiles.html#wordfiles
> The basic editor features would usually get replaced once more proper plugins 
> are installed for a given language.
> We could even introduce a mechanism to promote to users the full plugins 
> (from the Plugin Portal, etc) once they start editing given file types.
