Re: [ide-dev] a "Preview" view anywhere in Eclipse IDE?

e(fx)clipse has such a "feature". We have a "Preview" of Editor-Content

We show a preview of everything that adapts to our interface (currently
it is our XML-Editor and an Xtext-Editor) and then listen for the dirty
event of the editor to refresh the preview.

Thanks Tom, so it's somehow exactly like the Outline view (which I like as it) and it seems to work. That validates that it's not technically difficult.
Do you think there are parts of this e(fx)clipse view that could be shared in Platform? Maybe the target interface of the adpter?
