Hi Max,

In theory yes, that should be possible... it should be mostly a matter of combining the definition of both as needed (although that may require some fiddling around with the related files).

As a reference, the jinja2 and yaml definitions used are:

There are some instructions at on how to create your own .liclipse file.

It should also be possible to embed one inside the other. For instance, mako embeds python (see: -- in particular, search for SwitchLanguageRule there).
