Asciidoctor / NetBeans

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager

With Jason Lee's NetBake plugin (https://bitbucket.org/jdlee/netbake), when you've installed JRuby and then the Asciidoctor gem, you're good to go to use Asciidoctor with NetBeans IDE.

New Asciidoc files can be created, which have a Source view...

...and a Visual view. The current content of the text editor is parsed by the Asciidoctor gem and the resulting HTML is displayed in a JEditorPane:

Awestruct support is also part of the NetBake plugin, with a new project type and other related features. An Options window is included for configuring the plugin:

I've been in touch with Jason and we're discussing separating the Asciidoctor parts from the Awestruct parts and then putting them seperately as plugins on the NetBeans Plugin Portal.

    How to install it? There is no plugin NetBake in the plugin portal. Even in the project's site you can't see any information to build it.

    If you've read read the last sentence of this blog entry, it's surprising that you think the plugin is available in the NetBeans Plugin Portal. It's not there yet, just in case you need to be told that another way. Do you want to work on the NetBake project?

    Sorry! I was looking for an asciidoc editor for Netbeans, I've stopped on second image :)!

    I'm just a user, but I can help testing the project.

    Thanks for you attention.

    An Asciidoctor preview and/or syntax highlighting plugin would be great.
