I know this is becoming a bit [OT], but another worthwhile project for a LiveCode guru: add LiveCode syntax to the ACE editor project:

ACE is an in-browser text editor made for programming. It is widely used in many programming and coding sites, like GitHub, and supports dozens of programming languages - from the most popular ones, to many you've never heard of. Unfortunately, ACE does not recognise LiveCode.

Helping add LiveCode syntax to ACE can increase the visibility of LiveCode as a language in the greater programmer community. It may also have side benefits - such as perhaps allowing us to edit .irev and .lc server files in-browser! :-)

The structure of ACE syntax files is quite well documented on their website, and there is even a way to translate a TextMate Language file (TMLanguage) into ACE.

Kindest regards to all,
