Vex Proposed as New Eclipse Mylyn Docs Project
A new WYSIWYM XML Editor for XML file formats, has been proposed for Eclipse.
Vex has been proposed as a new open source project
under the Mylyn Docs container project. Vex will provide an WYSIWYM
XML Editor for developers using XML authoring file formats, and
will leverage existing XML support and frameworks from the Web
Developers Tools project, particularly the WTP validation
frameworks and Structure Source Editor. Vex will also provide a
plug-in architecture to be used with XML files, and new CSS style
sheets that can be used with existing known document formats.
It will be based on the Vex (Visual Editor for XML) project,
which was donated to Eclipse in 2008 and has previously been an
Eclipse Web Tools Incubator component. This initial code supports
DITA and DocBook formats out of the box, and has consistent Hudson
Florian Thienel, Holger Voorman and Igor Jacy Lino Campista,
committers on the Web Tools Incubator Vex component; and David
Carver, committer on the Web Tools Source Editing project; have
been proposed as initial committers.
