HTML Syntax Highlighting Support for Orion

Orion 0.2 M7 Released

Jessica Thornsby

Latest milestone of the Orion browser-based tool integration platform.


Orion
0.2 M7 has been released with a list of new
functionality, including support for syntax highlighting of HTML
files, and the ability to import and export content between the
Orion workspace and a remote server, via the SSH File Transfer
Protocol. Orion’s compare editor supports editing and saving the
content on the left hand side, which opens up new possibilities,
such as merging individual changes from the Git index into the
working copy in the Git Status page. Files and folders can be
renamed directly in the Navigator page, and can be copied in the
Navigator using the copy and paste commands. The Orion server now
provides a facility for tracking progress of long running server
operations.

Plugins can contribute content assist implementations for
different file types. This is an example of a plugin that
contributes a content assist service for JavaScript files:

var provider = new eclipse.PluginProvider();
        provider.registerServiceProvider("IContentAssistService",
                new orion.contentAssist.JavaScriptContentAssistProvider(),
                {name: "JavaScript content assist", pattern: "\.js$"});
        provider.connect();

More information on all the changes, is available at the
New and Noteworthy page.
