GDL Syntax Highlight for VSCode

Miha Nahtigal
Advocate
I've just published a VSCode Extension for GDL highlighting (it's free). It is a first release so it is a bit rough. I'll try to update it regularly.

You can download it from VSCode marketplace or install it directly from VSCode->Extensions (search for GDL).

thank you
A good friend of mine have once told me that I´m so brute that I´m capable of creating a GDL script capable of creating GDLs.

Hi all,

Graphisoft has been working on something similar, now we are releasing our extension for VSCode.
It has syntax highlighing, gdl-specific themes, snippets, script outline and built-in reference guide.
Install it from VSCode by searching GDL in the Extension view. We will update it with each ArchiCAD release.

Another Awesome Adition! Amazing!

A quick sugestion: Enhance Documentation regarding XML Specific Data Like "GDL Pict" which embeds images.
The only way I could achieve it was by extracting pre-made Objects and analysing the actual code. Even the GDLXml converter topic is quite "simplistic".
There's no documentation on that topic.

Nice work, Peter. Good to see GDL getting some love.
But no open source?
That's sad.

Yes, the intent is that it will be open-source, we need some time to organize it in a company-standard way.

Great news. It would also be good to add a series of best practice tutorials to the you tube site. Similar to what is done for ArchiCAD in general. Something that would blow my mind would be if Graphisoft setup a github account similar to McNeel and had GDL and API samples that are as in depth as those found here.

https://github.com/mcneel/rhino-developer-samples

https://github.com/mcneel

It might be too much to ask but try open sourcing Param-O Look what that has done for Dynamo
