I've got a few use-cases recently for a "Preview" view in the Eclipse IDE, which would allow to show a preview of the "rendered" file as one type. Some potential use-cases:
* TextMate grammar result
* HTML edition
* SVG edition
* Java dialogs and so on (a bit like what WindowBuilder is able to show from Java code introspection)
* GEF EditPart
* ...whatever can be rendered...
I imagine it a bit like the Outline view, except that the idea is to call it "Preview" and keep Outline dedicated to navigation.
Is anyone aware of an Eclipse project already providing a similar view we could reuse? Would it be welcome to host such a view in Platform UI?
