An Emacs major mode for editing pollen file.
The major mode provides font locks for
- malformed (dangling) command character
- tag functions
These files also provide
- Key-bindings in a minor mode for editing pollen files.
- A company-mode backend for tag function completions.
Pollen mode makes it easy to insert lozenge in a non-disturbing way:
@ and hit the tab.
@ will be turned into lozenge.
Along with tag function completions (see below), it is easier to insert correct tag functions now.
Pollen mode supports block editing.
C-c C-c will put the block under
cursor into another buffer for special editing. You can turn on any
mode you want in the new buffer without interfering original one.
Editing preprocess file
Pollen mode makes it easy to edit pollen preprocess files too. Emacs already provides useful mode for the file that pollen is preprocessing. When opens pollen preprocess file, Emacs will automatically turn on pollen minor mode for the buffer, so that you won't lose any convenient key-bindings of its major mode.
Tag Function Completions
company-pollen is a company-mode backend for supporting identifier
completions. It supports completing identifiers exported from pollen
modules you're editing. The completion works even if you have nested
directory as the completion facility respects pollen configuration
pollen-mode also provides functions to start, stop and resume pollen
server. Most of actions need just one keystroke once the server has
started. Start the server by
pollen-server-start, and follow
instructions on the server window.

Feedbacks and feature requests are very welcome. I write with pollen-mode everyday and I'd like to hear your thoughts on how to improve our editing experience.
