Lua Highlighter as Separate Addon?

Oct 3, 2008 at 4:37 AM
I have been looking everywhere for a good Lua syntax highlighter / intellisense implementation for Visual Studio 2008, and have yet found one that works well. Looking at the World of Warcraft AddOn Studio, one of the promoted is a powerful Lua code editor.

I was wondering if there was any way to get the Lua code editor as a plug-in for Visual Studio 2008, without having to install the rest of the WoW addon studio?

I would like this as well if possible...

This just isn't something we have the resources to do. It's certainly possible and the code is available if someone wanted to try to do this though, but AddOn Studio is designed for World of Warcraft APIs, not general purpose Lua development.

Cheers,
