Sublime WLST Syntax Highlighting

To make life easier when writing WLST scripts you should use a text editor that has syntax highlighting and auto-complete support for the WLST language. My favourite text editor is Sublime Text, but WLST is not one of the language it supports out of the box. So I’ve created a plugin that adds WLST support into Sublime. To install:

  1. Install Package Control (Instructions here: https://sublime.wbond.net/installation)
  2. Activate your Command Palette and choose “Package Control: Install Package”
  3. Search for WLST and install the package from me (Joelith)
  4. Once you’ve done that you can select ‘WLST’ from the language selection drop down.

This will add syntax-highlighting auto-complete for most of the WLST commands. The auto-complete will also show mandatory parameters for commands that require them (useful when you forget the order of params). It’s still a work in progress, but any changes I make will be uploaded to https://github.com/Joelith/sublime-wlst/. Package Control will update your plugin automatically so you don’t need to do anything. If you notice any issues with the plugin just post on GitHub and I’ll fix it.
