Is there any IDE for Modula-2? I'm currently use CudaText but I'm not really like it.

If you use Eclipse, XDS has a plug-in (now open-source here

Visual Studio Code apparently has an extension available for Modula-2 syntax highlighting and code snippets.

You could use my multi-dialect Modula-2 patches for VIM

Also, Gaius Mulley (GM2 developer) has covered the same functionality for Emacs.

You can check the GM2 mailing list archive for the URL.

Unfortunately does not seem to be compatible with the regular Visual Studio which I've been using (to minimize complexity between work/home).

Anyone aware of resources available for developing syntax highlighting plug-ins for Visual Studio Community / Pro versions? I did not find enough useful in the Microsoft documentation library to even get started. I'd be willing to put some time in on it if I could find out what needs to be done.
