While I know that WING IDE is built for Python development and it does a fantastic job at that. I was just wondering if there are any plans for improving support for Javascript frameworks such as Angular or React? I noticed you can not select Typescript as the file type, the best bet is Javascript but then you do not get Syntax highlighting for keywords such as let. Is there a way to customize this or write a custom file? Also if I use, mat-card /mat-card in the HTML from Angular Material for example, it is red, so I am assuming it is not detecting correctly.

Apart from that, great, editor for Python and I will continue to use it! I jsut think it would be ideal with better Javascript support.

+1 I am unable to upvote the question and answer. I use Django, and Wing IDE is awesome for the python work. However because it's Django, the project has a LOT of javascript and html in its templates. I think highlighting and linting for that code would be incredible, and frnakly I'm puzzled as to why it isn't there already. Maybe Wing isn't popular for Django work?

Our focus at Wingware is on Python. We do have some support for Javascript and plan to improve it in the future, but our focus will continue to be on Python.

We'll try to update our Javascript syntax highlighting support soon, probably adding the ability to define keyword lists.

How about integrating an ESlint with wing as it seems to be done in PyCharm.

I am not an expert in the area at all but I read this in the Django recommendation for extensions in javascript used in the admin. It is Here

Unfortunately, integrating ESLint or other Javascript extensions is not something we'll be working on in the near term.
