Eclipse plugin for wesnoth UMC development

This page is related to SoC_Ideas_Eclipse_Plugin

We want to use the eclipse platform as the IDE to assist Wesnoth UMC (user-made-content) Development. To do that, we need to create an eclipse plugin which will allow to rapidly start UMC development and which will act as a frontend for existing wesnoth UMC development tools. To do so, we need to try to integrate existing solutions as much as possible.

Features wanted for first preview release

  • 'new campaign' wizard
  • 'new scenario' wizard
  • WML syntax highlight
  • tab completion for tags and attributes

The workflow should be like: Start eclipse. Create a new campaign. That will give a _main.cfg and the directory structure "images, scenarios, units, utils, and so on" Then there is a new scenario wizard, which will be able to connect the scenarios together if the storyline is linear.
