Lot's O' Languages - Visual Studio Language Pack


Mr. Extension himself, Mads Kristensen, has just released an awesome set of language support for Visual Studio. It's not "compete" support, just a basic level, but sometimes that's all you need (and something is better than nothing).

Visual Studio Language Pack

Adds basic language support for a wide variety of programming languages such as Clojure, Go, Jade, Lua, Swift, Ruby and many more

See the change log for changes and road map.

TextMate bundles

This extension uses Visual Studio's capability to load TextMate bundles.

It works by registering TextMate bundles so that Visual Studio will automatically load them when a file is opened that matches one of the bundles and no other language service is available for the specific file type.

For instance, this extension contains a TextMate bundle for YAML files, but if you decide to install the more powerful YAML Editor extension then that extension will win. That makes it safe to install this extension even if you have separate extensions for one or more of the languages already.
