The Quali Torque language extension aims to ease the life of the Torque content creators by providing file validations, code completions and more.
When designing a blueprint, you can get code suggestions based on a document schema. For example, it may help you to figure out
what other properties could be added to the document.
When designing a grain, under the depends-on field, intellisense can provide you with a list of the available grains names.
This extension runs a pretty long list of validations, including general YAML schema validations and more
complex dynamic checks. Some of them include:
Validate that grains or inputs mentioned in expressions are defined
Validate that expressions are being used in the allowed places only
Grains depends-on validations
And more validations coming soon...
