Thanks. I’ve had a quick look.
One thing I’ve found is that it supports \start... commands, yet in some cases the corresponding \stop... commands seem to be missing.

Am I missing something ?

Betreff: [NTG-context] New VSCode extenstion using ConTeXt Language server

Hello All,

I have published the new VSCode Extension for ConTeXt, that I presented during the 2022 ConTeXt meeting -


You can install it manually in the VSCode (using the "Install from VSIX..." option).
Documentation (for now) - https://meeting.contextgarden.net/2022/talks/ramkumar/ramkumar-talk.pdf

This supports ConTeXt markup and for any Lua code (within \startluacode & \stopluacode) it re-directs to the Lua Language Server (from Sumneko - https://github.com/sumneko/lua-language-server )

To Do -

  1.  Make the source code open-source
  2.  Add new features (like Hover & Tooltip)
  3.  Work with Taco to add MetaPost Language Server (this could be challenging and interesting)
Do give this a try and give your feedback. Note that this does not contain *all* the macros but covers the vast majority of the ConTeXt commands.

Thank you,

best regards
