Eclipse TM4E includes the necessary code to easily set up syntax highlighting for a wide diversity of languages in the Eclipse IDE, by reusing TextMate grammars.
The default integration is to provide features into the Platform's Generic and Extensible editor, but some code may be used as API to let integration be done with other Eclipse-based editors.
A piece of the project would be a plain Java (non Eclipse IDE specific) API to easily manipulate TextMate grammars. This API will be used by the Eclipse IDE integration, but might be useful in some other plain Java use-cases. Hence, although it’s not the main goal, some care will be taken in order to keep this part independent of Eclipse IDE and working in a Java environment.
