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:
- Install Package Control (Instructions here: https://sublime.wbond.net/installation)
- Activate your Command Palette and choose “Package Control: Install Package”
- Search for WLST and install the package from me (Joelith)
- 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.
