Re: [ide-dev] Beware MSFT bullshit

I guess TM4E together with the generic editor would be the way to go, if we could support users directly adding Textmate grammars, instead of installing "heavyweight" plug-ins.

Do users actually add textmate grammars into other editors/IDEs? I don't think so. There are just 2 kinds of things: what's out of the box, and what requires an installation -whichever steps it involves. Having to add a textmate grammar in the IDE isn't going to be simpler than installing the right plugin from marketplace automatically proposed by the IDE.

So far, TM4E wasn't meant to include TM grammars. But we could imagine having it shipping a library of grammars for the most common types. Please open tickets (using GitHub issues) against TM4E to discuss that.
